40 Creepy Facts About The Black / Lestrange Family From Harry Potter
Sirius and Regulus are Both Common Family Names
If you look at the Black family tree, Sirius Black and Regulus Black aren’t exactly the first people in their families with those names. Given the fact that most Blacks are named after stars, it’s no surprise that an ancient family like the Blacks might eventually run out of names. Looking back, it seems like Sirius is the most common name in the family.
Interestingly, despite the history of his name, Sirius chose to buck all of the traditions that defined his family. He realized that traditions only mean something because people pretend they do. They’re nothing if you don’t invest yourself in them.
