Created by author J.K. Rowling for the arch-villain of the Harry Potter series. Rowling has indicated that she simply created the name for effect, but observers have linked the name to:
- Edgar Allen Poe's story "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar," in which a mesmerist suspends a dying man in a state neither alive nor dead
- The French vol + de + mort "flight/theft of death" (note that the author says that the final t in Voldemort is silent)
- Sketchy reports of a medieval legend of an evil wizard Voldemortist who fought Merlin in the days before Arthur
