Lucretia Prewett (née Black) (19251992) was a pure-blood witch from the noble House of Black who was married into the Prewett family

EtymologyEdit

Lucretia was a legendary Roman maiden who was raped by the son of the king of Rome, an event which triggered the toppling of the monarchy and the establishment of the Roman Republic. She commited suicide in public protest against dishonor. The name is from the Roman family name Lucretius, possibly derived from the Latin lucrum, "profit, wealth."[2] Also, Lucrezia Borgia was a Renaissance noblewoman from a family notorious for its ruthlessness and corruption.

281 Lucretia is an asteroid, which means this name loosely fits in with the Black family tradition of using celestial names for their children.
