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

Carson Bixby for Sloane Bixby. You can take the middle-aged man out of quidd—oh, apparently you can't.
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...

Is It Done?
August 10th, 1888 — Hogsmeade Hall, Post-Fog Reception

Life had been different and yet the same since Benjamin Turner had returned from his ‘adventure’. What had been three days to him had been an entire month, a strange twist of time that the Ravenclaw still did not understand. Nor was he in any position to investigate it: nightly, his dreams harkened back to his time in Irvingly—and the Casino in particular—causing him to awake in a cold sweat. A good night’s sleep had eluded him entirely since his return.

Otherwise, though, life had trucked on. He had returned home to an over-dramatic, ghostly mother who, after more than a week, no longer looked at him as though he was about to drop dead at any moment. In his absence, it seemed, Ben had also been named Head Boy—an honour by any measure, but one that still felt rather hollow, foreign to the young wizard. That was the feeling of much of life now: somehow over to the left, rather than directly in front of him.

He had hoped attending the reception would give him a sense of closure, but for the moment, Ben just felt entirely adrift on the fringes, trapped in the outside looking in at all the jubilant faces relieved to be rid of the fog at last.
