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...

Owlish and Confused

September 14th, 1888 — Owl Emporium

Thaddeus should have known that owls only lived so long. It was a matter of logical reason, but he had imagined that Cicero would live forever. How many letters had his beloved screech owl, a gift for his graduating Hogwarts, carried? All of missives to Josephine containing discussions of philosophy and magical antiquity, and later letters expressing a deep love and affection for her above all others -- his dearest and best friend, the Platonic other half of his soul.

It had been a shock to find poor Cicero dead earlier in the week, and Thaddeus had stubbornly waited to see about getting another owl. Eventually the need for one won out over loyalty: it was simply more practical to rely on one's own owl than the post, especially for sending notice outside of regular hours.

The owl emporium was dim, and Thaddeus was busy inspecting the owls when a loud hissing came from a dark corner. Lost in his own thoughts, the hiss startled him and he jumped, jostling into another customer. "Goodness, surely there is not a snake in here," he exclaimed, then blushed red to his hairline -- a snake in an owl emporium would be extremely unlikely, and how could he be so silly?
