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:

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...

why does moving up a class lower reputation? Are there ways to remove permanent reputation effects?

Social mobility in VE Britain was seen as a bad thing. While the US had "the American dream", those in the old world would actually have been uncomfortable with people striving to rise above their 'station'.

"One step" (WC -> MC or vice versa; MC -> UC or vice versa) changes only last a year; it's only when a character moves from UC -> WC or WC -> UC that the rep ding is permanent :) That said, even if there is nothing else wrong with you at all ever, you can still never be higher than a 9 again. Fortunately, 9 is still the higher end of "good"!

EDIT: Marriage-based mobility is a permanent ding because rather than moving around on your own successes, you're 'conning' your way into that class!
