Harry Potter Etymology | Patronus Charm (“Expecto Patronum”)
Patronus means “protector”, “guardian”, or simply “patron” in Latin, specifically reflecting the entire role that the Patronus Charm plays. In archaic Latin, it meant “father”, which is very interesting, considering that Harry Potter’s Patronus is the same as his father’s Patronus and Animagus form, a stag. The Latin word exspecto or expecto means “I look out for” or “I wait for”, thus the charm’s incantation roughly translates into “I await a protector.”

Why does no one ever talk about Andromeda Tonks I mean she was a pure-blood Slytherin in the Black family and she still chose to marry a muggle born despite being disowned and then she raised one of the most badass witches in all of existence and joined the Order of the Pheonix and when her husband, daughter and son-in-law all died in the war, she stepped up and helped raise Teddy seriously that woman was a fucking hero.
