40 Creepy Facts About The Black / Lestrange Family From Harry Potter
Bellatrix’s Name is Latin
Although the meaning in Bellatrix’s last name is fairly self-evident, her first name also contains hints as to who she really is. The word Bellatrix is latin, and it means “war-like.” That war-like nature is also connected to her femininity through the “trix,” which has a feminine meaning.
War seems to be in Bellatrix’s blood. She certainly likes fighting, to say the least. If only she’d considered fighting for the good guys instead of the bad guys. Unfortunately, Bellatrix’s skills in war don’t save her in the end. Warriors are great in battle until the day they’re finally cut down to size.
