Harry Potter Names

Again, I respect the fact that some of you are not Harry Potter fans. However, I always think it is cool to ponder how an author came up with the names for his or her characters. J. K. Rowing, author of the Harry Potter series, has some very interesting names for her beloved group of wizards and muggles. Here is a really good website that explains what some of the names mean. There are several of these websites out there, but I feel like this one is closest to J. K. Rowling’s intentions. For instance, Sirius, also called the dog star, is the brightest star in the sky

Believe it or not, the Harry Potter series has actually sparked an entire music movement. The video below isn’t the greatest, but the song “The End of an Era” will hold true for many of you Harry Potter fans. I hope you enjoy! 🙂
