Which Harry Potter character should you actually marry?

 

 

Potterheads since the creation of Harry Potter series have been looking for more and more details in the books. With so many theories and clues, readers have concluded that there are hidden meanings behind the names of the characters of the series.

Here are the meanings behind some names from the “Harry Potter” universe.

Harry Potter’s name is all about his leadership qualities.

Common English, Dutch, and northern German name, “potter” refers to people who make pots. Whereas “Harry” is a Middle English version of the name “Henry,” which according to Pottermore is one of the common names of many kings of England. This makes a lot of sense and is a good justification for the leadership qualities Harry had

Ronald Bilius Weasley’s name refers to his status as Harry’s sidekick.

Ron’s name very much defined his personality and position in the books. The name “Ronald” is an anglicized name derived from the Old Norse name “Rögnvaldr,” which refers to a ruler’s adviser. Whereas “Weasley,” it sounds a lot like “weasel,” which isn’t a popular animal, which is sort of like Ron’s personality. The not so popular boy who is the sidekick of the boy who lived.

Hermione Jean Granger’s name is more a reflection of her parents than her own personality.

The name “Hermione” was taken from William Shakespeare’s “A Winter’s Tale”. Rowling told the readers that her name was a reflection of her parent’s personality, a pair of dentists who wanted to showcase their wit.

Whereas “Granger” is a somewhat common English and French name, an occupational name that refers to a farm worker who dealt with grain. It is said that Rowling also considered the name “Puckle” as Hermione’s last name which means “devil” but we all can agree that Hermione was not even close to that.
