Samuel G. Quahog

"We are delighted to report that this prank has ended in a friendly and cooperative fashion."
-- interview with Samuel G. Quahog following the return of Hans the Augurey to Liechtenstein (Pm)

Commentary

Etymology

Samuel is a Hebrew name meaning "heard or asked of God" (Quick Baby Names).

A quahog is a large, hard round-shelled edible clam, native to the Atlantic coast of North America. The word derives from Narragansett/Algonquian Native American 'poquaûhock' (lump mollusc) (Oxford English Dictionary). It may also be a reference to the fictional Rhode Island setting of the animated sitcom Family Guy.

Notes

As he is from the US, Quahog may have attended the Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
