Hola Pirate Chik:It's a book title!!!
1. A holy personage, a saint. (Little used after 1500, and now preserved only in all-hallows and its combinations, q.v.)
2. In plural, applied to the shrines or relics of saints; the gods of the heathen or their shrines. In the phrase to seek hallows, to visit the shrines or relics of saints; orig. as in sense 1, the saints themselves being thought of as present at their shrines.
3. A loud shout or cry, to incite dogs in the chase, to help combined effort, or to attract attention.
En ese caso, puede referirse a los horcruxes como implicaba Crisss ayer. http://forum.wordreference.com/showpost.php?p=1984026&postcount=15The first objective we have is to understand what hallows means in English, in this context. Apparently it can also refer to sacred objects:
The Hallows across most legends are seen to represent the royal regalia carried by the King, or the objects sought by someone such as a 'Grail Quester' (See Grail Knights) in both ancient and modern stories.

I'm HP fan too. I live in Mexico and I just have seen the translation on a local news paper, it`s "Harry Potter y los Espíritus Mortales" making reference of "Hallows" as a spirit and "Deathly" as an adjective. But I sort of like more the translation as "Relics" and I agree it fits perfectly with the Horcruxes stuff.
Oxford Dictionary2. In plural, applied to the shrines or relics of saints; the gods of the heathen or their shrines. In the phrase to seek hallows, to visit the shrines or relics of saints; orig. as in sense 1, the saints themselves being thought of as present at their shrines.
And yet that translation doesn't satisfy me... though it's very close to the horcruxes plot
It makes more sense to me, but I may be wrong."I thought I might go back to Godric's Hollow".
