Gregory Cotton

"A furious chase between Portree Seeker Dougal McBride and Arrows Seeker Gregory Cotton ended in a skybound scuffle"
-- match report in the Daily Prophet (DP3)



Gregory comes from the Latin name Gregorius, via Late Greek Γρηγοριος (Gregorios), which derives from γρηγορος (gregoros) meaning "watchful, alert" (Behind the Name).

Cotton is a pre-7th century Olde English surname deriving from cotum ("cottages") (Internet Surname Database).


There’s nothing like some good healthy competition, is there? Or did he curse McBride first?
