Hi there!

A friend of mine is due with a little girl in a couple of weeks.
She wants to call her girl Hermione after the character in Rowling's books! Honestly I do not know if I should consider her nuts ... is she? She said she just loved the ring of it and she would pick Hermione Jane no matter what.

So this made me think about the other Harry Potter names ... would you call your child ...

Boys:

Regulus
Sirius
Dudley
Vernon
Marvolo
Morfin
Rubeus
Neville
Draco
Lucius
Harry James
Severus
Albus


Girls:
Lavender
Fleur
Petunia
Merope
Hermione
Hedwig
Bellatrix
Narcissa
Minerva
Lily
Nymphadora
Ginny / Ginevra

just curious

The ones that don't sound like wanna-be Latin names, sure.

Vernon
Neville
Harry
James

Petunia
Hermione
Lily
Ginny ... it would not be a nn for Ginevra though

I think Hermione sounds beautiful too. Just please make sure she's pronouncing it right. My sister swore it was "her-mee-OWN" for months after she read the first Harry Potter book.

I don't like any of them. I'm not opposed to naming your children after characters in a book. I just wouldn't use Harry Potter as my insipration!

I have never seen Harry Potter and the only name I like is Harry as a nn for Harrison. The others aren't my style. I have two small children at home! No time for movies like HArry Potter! lol

I like these names and I've never read nor watched anything to do with Harry Potter. I wouldn't actually use Lavender for a kid but I think it sounds pretty nontheless.

Neville
Lucius


Lavender
Lily

I have a cat named Lavender Brown. Parvati was left off of the list of girls names

I considere a name I'd read in Eragon. My husband suggested it, but couldn't remember where it came from. I glad I realized it before I named one of the babies Arya.
