Best Answer

He is otherwise known as Padfoot by James, Peter and Remus.

His code name in the Second Wizarding War became 'Snuffles,' because 'Padfoot' was too risky (Peter would recognize this).

Which of Harry Potters classmates is related to Sirius Black?

Draco Malfoy. His mother is Narcissa Malfoy (née Black), who is the cousin of Sirius Black. Others are, distantly. Harry himself is very distantly related to Sirius, because the Black family tree shows a Charlus Potter and Dorea Potter (nee Black) marrying. Ron Weasley's parents are both somehow linked to the House of Black, with Molly's uncle having married a Black and Arthur's mother being a Black before she married Septimus Weasley (and being subsequently burnt off the family tree for marrying a 'blood traitor'). Neville Longbottom is also distantly related to the Blacks. This is the case with a pureblood family such as the Blacks, much to Sirius' amusement when he shows Harry the family tree. In order to keep the bloodline pure, many wizards and witches end up marrying relatives. Sirius' own parents were second cousins before their marriage!

Who is Snuffles in 'Harry Potter and the Order Phoenix'?

Snuffles is the nickname for Sirius Black's animagus form. Because Sirius is a wanted criminal, they refer to him as 'Snuffles' in public (Padfoot being too risky, as this name was used openly back in his Hogwarts years). So, pretty much, Snuffles is the dog version of Sirius Black.
