Author J.K. Rowling created the name Marvolo for two characters in her Harry Potter series: Marvolo Gaunt and his grandson Tom Marvolo Riddle, aka Voldemort. Tom Marvolo Riddle is an anagram of "I Am Lord Voldemort," and the creation of this anagram was presumably a key factor in the name's selection. However, Marvolo also clearly suggests marvels, as befits a pureblood wizard, as well as Shakespearean names such as Malvolio (Twelfth Night).
