Re: HP *MAJOR SPOILERS* Heh, with names like Scorpius around, he have to get in line to be beaten! Seriously though, being named after the most famous headmaster the school has known can't be that bad. While I was sobbing mightily over the deaths, I feel that they had to be included. It wouldn't have been realistic for Harry and his friends to all survive and the only deaths to be unnamed characters. I'm actually surprized that all the teachers survived. I would have thought that at least one would have been killed to make the point about sacrifice (or did the centaur die, I can't remember) When they do the movie, I can see them doing a scene like the end of Master and Commander where the camera just pans over the bodies and we see familiar faces there.
