In fantastic beasts and where to find them, there are characters called Porpentina and Queenie Goldstein. In Harry Potter, there’s a minor character called Anthony Goldstein. Are they related?

  • They both have the same common Jewish name. That means they should be at least extremely distantly related. – Jack B Nimble Jan 17 '18 at 22:24
  • I'm not sure why this has attracted downvotes. Given the wizarding obsession with families, this seems a perfectly sensible question. – Valorum Jan 17 '18 at 22:48

    That being said, the question of their relation to Anthony Golstein is directly addressed in another question. – Valorum Jan 17 '18 at 22:51
  • @user14111 - As long as you live, that will be an unsolved riddle in your mind... – Valorum Jan 18 '18 at 3:41
  • It's not a duplicate question, it just so happens that a different question uses the same source as evidence. – OrangeDog Jan 18 '18 at 12:16

Per JKRs twitter, yes they are related. It's not explained how.

@jk_rowling: Well, I think it's widely known that that characters of (Porpen)tina and Queenie are sisters, but not that their surname is Goldstein.

‏@marknffc7: any r[e]lation to Anthony Goldstein?

@jk_rowling: Yes (but distant).
