First names were most often used by childhood or school friends. If the friendship was made after school age, first names would only really be used by women. Men were far more likely to refer to their friends by their surnames, a mark of familiarity. — Documentation

WANTED:

Emilia Wright for Jude Wright. Casually alienating offspring since 18882.
Separating was also not a great idea, though they weren't doing great at staying together anyway. If she were to volunteer to be the human sacrifice.. well... Hogsmeade had plenty of debutantes anyway...

SWP 8: Choose Your Own Adventure
#33
Given that there hasn't been news for the people that have already left the groups already, I've had the thought that perhaps the Ministry is keeping everything quiet until everyone is done with their expeditions. Which could explain as to why the people that have gone to the infirmary have not been announced in the DP or WW. That's been my headcanon so far, and I was wondering if I could get this confirmed or denied as site canon.

Short answer: That's not accurate.
Long answer:
The Ministry isn't actually keeping anything quiet, (Ross is big on transparency,) but even if they wanted to, they wouldn't have to. The DP is reporting in the fog based on reporters on the ground, who have to communicate to the London office through owl mail, which isn't super timely.
More importantly than that, privacy laws would ensure that the Infirmary can't just tell reporters who's out/what happened without breaking the law. Any reports would be "a woman was picked up by the infirmary," which isn't, really, article material, and reporters don't have access to the infirmary or hospital to get more information.
