More charming names, gents, but none the winner yet!

Clue #3: When several friends heard his middle name, they remarked that he sounded like a character from Harry Potter. And indeed, three different characters in the Potter series have this name.

Time to make the next few clues a little easier... And flytyer, Tiberias would have been awesome--that's Captain Kirk's middle name!

Clue #4: Indiana Jones and his father are both named Henry, like my boy. In Last Crusade, the Joneses teamed up to find the Holy Grail. My Henry's middle name is another famous character who searched for the Grail.

Percival! What a great name (although Gawain is my favorite knight)! The knight that actually won the Grail. Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore and Percy Weasely (I don't know the third character).

And it's wintermute with the win!

(The third is Percival Pratt, who lives in the painting on the stairs.)

PM me, and let me know what kind(s) of blend you like, that you may claim your prize.

Good show all, fellows. I may have to have another boy so I can use some of these you guessed.

Don Manhattan, I am honored and grateful that you have chosen to offer me a tin of tobacco to honor the day of your son's birth. May your son be a masculine child.

Thank you very much sir, and congratulations!

An English surgeon, I think he came up with the first way of imobilizing a broken leg so it can heal instead of amputation.

Thanks to Wikipedia:
In 1756, Pott sustained a broken leg after a fall from his horse. It is often assumed that his injury was the same one that later came to be known as Pott's fracture, but in reality Pott's broken leg was a much more serious compound fracture of the femur. As he lay in the mud and muck, he sent a servant to buy a door from a nearby construction site, then had himself placed on the door and taken home. Surgeons cleaned the wound and discussed amputation, an operation which at the time had a very high rate of failure (as it often led to sepsis and death), but Pott prevailed on them to splint the leg and he ultimately recovered completely.[1] In 1768, Pott published Some Few Remarks upon Fractures and Dislocations. The book was translated into French and Italian and had a far-reaching influence in Britain and France. His name was written in the annals of medicine, by first describing arthritic tuberculosis of the spine (Pott's disease). He gave an excellent clinical description in his Remarks on that Kind of Palsy of the Lower Limbs. Among his other writings the most noteworthy are A Treatise on Ruptures (1756), and Chirurgical Observations.

In 1775, Pott found an association between exposure to soot and a high incidence of scrotal cancer (later found to be squamous cell carcinoma) in chimney sweeps. This was the first occupational link to cancer, and Pott was the first person to demonstrate that a malignancy could be caused by an environmental carcinogen. Pott's early investigations contributed to the science of epidemiology and the Chimney Sweeper's Act of 1788.[2]

In 1765 he was elected Master of the Company of Surgeons, the forerunner of the Royal College of Surgeons.
