Summary: Tom Riddle decides to give up his Muggle father's name.

Tom closed the hangings around his bed and drew letters against them with his wand: TOM MARVOLO RIDDLE.

He briefly stared at the name, then began rearranging the letters while muttering to himself about his awful Muggle name.

"I AM LORD," he said aloud, before moving on to the remaining letters.

"Troveldom? Modelvort? Dolvermot? Lodvetorm?"

He rearranged them again.

"Vometlord?" He winced.

He was in the middle of another attempt when the hangings were opened from the outside by his classmate, Lestrange.

"What's Voldemort?" he asked.

Tom observed the fiery letters hanging in the air and grinned nastily.

"My name."
