Re: Would you name your children after Harry Potter characters?

I happen to love old fashioned names like James, Lily, George, etc. So I would name my kids names like these whether they were Harry Potter characters or not.

Lily is my favorite. so pretty!

Re: Would you name your children after Harry Potter characters?

Luna and Cedric would be my favorite names. But if i didnt use them as the first name i would have it as their middle names!

I would love to use the name Lily. You don't hear it very often.

Re: Would you name your children after Harry Potter characters?

Maybe, I don't know...some of the names are quite unusual and little strange. But some are really beautiful. Still I wouldn't like to name my children after some HP names that it would be obvious to everyone where I've taken them form...
Some names I totally could use are:

Girls: Lily, Luna, Bella(trix), Gabrielle, Isabelle, Rose or Cassandra
Boys: James, Oliver, Charlie, Teddy, Albus (as middle name though) or Maybe just maybe Sirius...(as a middlename)

(as for pets: Dobby, Snuffles, Sirius, Remus, Poppy, Tonks and many more would do...)

Re: Would you name your children after Harry Potter characters?

Knowing me, most likely! I love many of the names in the series, and i'd like to see my children named after some of my most favourite characters from my most favourite series.

Re: Would you name your children after Harry Potter characters?

Names I would consider...

Girls:
~Lily
~Luna
~Rowena
~Ariana
~Narcissa...maybe. I would nickname her Cissa or Cissy
~Astoria
~Fleur(middle name)

Boys:
~James
~Harry
~Lupin/Remus(middle name)
~Sirius(middle name)

I would probably use any of these names as either first or middle names.

Re: Would you name your children after Harry Potter characters?

My sister said one day that she wanted to name her son Albus Severus. The thing is, she hasn't read the books and has no idea that the name is already taken. Also, my brother named his daughter Hermione (although people usually call her Harmony because no one in New Orleans has the name Hermione). I would not name a child after a Harry Potter character but I REALLY like the name Narcissa.

Re: Would you name your children after Harry Potter characters?

Do pets count? I have plans to name future cats Albus Severus and Lily Luna... but not while my 18.5 year old cat is alive.

Re: Would you name your children after Harry Potter characters?

My favorite names would have to be:
1. Bellatrix (I love the carachter) as its unusual; not unlike the common "Bella"
2. Andromeda (I like "Andromeda Hazel" - Hazel is my grandmother's name). I like "Meda" for a nickname. What do you think of "Meda?" too ... girly?
3. Lucius (its got that "Roman" sorta feel to it.)
4. Narcissa "Cissy" - its really pretty (I know of the word "Narcisest" but I still like Narcissa).
5. Ariana - I've loved this name for as long as I can remember. If I had twins, I'd probably use Ariana with Andromeda.
6. Minerva- I love the carachter and the name.

Re: Would you name your children after Harry Potter characters?

Good question! I do like some of the names but I don't think I would name my children after them. Perhaps a pet, depending. lol

Some of my favorites are:
Parvati
Severus
Luna
Lucius
Cedric
Andromeda (I like that one too, bella10riddle! very pretty and unusual)
Sirius
James

Re: Would you name your children after Harry Potter characters?

I wouldn't, since I'm not from an English background and it'd be quite... weird. x.o Although if I did:
Boys:
1. Fred
2. George (if only they could be twins!)
3: Bill
4. Sirius
5. Charlie/Ron (The Weasley's names are too good to resist D= )

Girls:
1. Lily
2. Luna
3. Ginny would be okay...
4. Alice
5. Angelina/Katie

Most of the girl's names are weird... x.o && I feel sorry for Harry's son; I mean, he's named after a homosexual man who was about 135 years to his father's elder, and a teacher who just about everybody at Hogwarts hated.

Re: Would you name your children after Harry Potter characters?

Some of the more common names I might name my children, but not because of Harry Potter. I've always liked the name Lily (I like it with one L instead of two, so thats a bit different. ). I also want to name my son Luc, and I guess that's close enough to Lucius. I'd love to be able to somehow use Severus' name, without it being so. . .blatantly Harry Potter. Any ideas? Other than that, the other names are too related to Harry Potter and mythology/astronomy to be to my liking. XoX

Re: Would you name your children after Harry Potter characters?

Hmm... I'm not sure,
I have an aunt called Narcissa, very exentric aunt by the way (love her to death though), and I think that the name sounds nice, perhaps if I come to have a child and it turns out to be a girl, it's a possibility.
(Because I also like the name Cassandra a lot).

Funny is that my name is actually Gabriella, the italian for Gabrielle. And I have a friend called Luna (:

Re: Would you name your children after Harry Potter characters?

Hmmm. I actually have names picked out for possible children that really nothing to do with Harry Potter. Hmmm...
Severus is a name i would like to see but i dont know if id name my kid that.
Lucius would be a nice one since my planned names have an L theme. (Logan, Lydia, etc) Same with Luna but the problem with that one is the whole "loony, lunatic" thing she may catch in school.

Re: Would you name your children after Harry Potter characters?

Totally! I'm considering naming my first boy after Sirius. I really like the name. Luna's a good one, too. Mostly, I like exotic names like Acadia.

Re: Would you name your children after Harry Potter characters?

I named my youngest son Markus Severus, so he has a common first name and a second name that makes his mummy happy. He's only three, he doesn't know anything about Harry Potter yet.

Re: Would you name your children after Harry Potter characters?

Ever since I read PoS, I fell in love with the name Sirius. I think it's the most beautiful thing. If I ever decided to have kids, and I had a boy, I would choose Sirius.
