In honor of Harry Potter — and with thanks to “The Ultimate Unofficial Harry Potter Trivia Book”(*), today’s trivia source, we ask:  

“Which Harry Potter character is named after author J.K. Rowling’s grandfather?” 

1. Seamus Finnigan 

2. Ernie Macmillan 

3. Anthony Goldstein 

4. Roger Davies 

Answer: 

“Ernie Macmillan was the name of J.K. Rowling’s grandfather. As a tribute to him, J.K. Rowling decided to include his name and assigned  it to a character in the series.” (*)
