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

If the name was fairly common and not too exotic... and I happened to like it, maybe I would. But I have some name ideas already.

Yes. If I had a daughter I'd name her Luna. That's such a pretty name.

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

Oh I would love to, but I seriously doubt my husband-to-be would let me
Plus I'd probably only use the names Lily or Luna for my daughter, but since I'm already set on naming my son Luca I think it would sound silly.. Lily/Luna and Luca; they're too similar.

However, when I get an apartment next year and adopt a cat, I am definitely naming it after a HP character!

If it's a girl..
Bellatrix (I just love that name!)
Luna
Lily
Ginny

If it's a boy..
Sirius
Lupin
James

Oh how lovely would it be to get two cats and have them Lily and James? I did that once with two fish I won from a fair, they both died within days though James first, just like in the books!

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

I like Severus, but probably only as a middle name.
Harry, James, or Ronald I think are pretty cool, but I found out recently that most people associate the name "Ronald" with "Ronald McDonald" and I don't like that.
Like some people said here, I wouldn't want my kid to be walking around with a silly name or a name that everyone will associate with HP. My name is Fiona and every where I go I get Shrek jokes. Believe it or not, people actually think they are being clever.
As for girls, I like Minerva, Ginevra, Hermione and Lily. They are such lovely names
I wouldn't name my children BECAUSE of any particular person in HP, but there are a lot of names in the series that are very nice.
I once joked to my dad that I was going to name my first born child "Napoleon Edward Constantine" and he got really angry. It took a while for him to forget.

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

I've never really liked the names Harry or Ron. Hermione is a very pretty name, but it's one that my child could possibly get teased for. I've always liked the name Lavender though, so that's a possibility.

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

Lily and Rowena but that is because I genuinely like those names. Lily more so than Rowena

My boyfriend's niece is named Luna but not after the character they just happened to like that name

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

One of my kids is named Harry...short for Harrison. He likes Harry better, as does his grandmother, as both are HP fans.

I've always liked the name Lily as well, but I fear the time for any practical application of same has long since passed!

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

I've had all my kids and they were all born pre-HP. Just by happenstance, I did want to name one of my sons Harrison and call him Harry, but my husband really didn't like the name. I have a friend named Hermione, which I think is a lovely name, but she is always called Herma. My son's girlfriend, also a big Harry Potter fan, is named Rowena--and I think she usually is sorted into Ravenclaw, too, when she does those quizzes.

I think I would be reluctant to saddle a child with a name too directly connected with HP--Albus or Severus, for instance. You don't know when you are naming your child if he or she will be the kind of person who will like extra attention for having an unusual name or if it will be a source of teasing. I guess it would be better to err on the side of caution, at least with a first name. But maybe as a middle name or one of the less HP-specific names might be a good choice.

I guess I'll have to wait and see what my grandchildren end up being named.

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

Since I'm 15, I'm a long ways away from this but...
Narcissa, Ginevra, James, Luna, and Lily.

Maybe Remus, Sirius, and George.

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

If I have children, which I most likely will, and a real scary thought, most likely in the next 10 years!! AHH!...anyways, I think I want to use some Harry Potter names, but dunno. I'll be a different person by the time I have children, I don't know if I'll still be obsessed with Harry Potter.

Anyways, names I will consider.

Girls
- Lily (liked this name for years)

Boys
- Severus (I actually like this name a lot for a first name. A cute nickname would be "Sevie or steven or steve") Although, I think im biased because i love Snape so much.

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

I don't think I could ever name a child especially after a character in a book, it'd be pretty mean if they hated the book or got teased about it. I would name a girl Rowena but that's because it's a pretty name - it'd just be a bonus that it's a Harry Potter name.

maybe. But I would translate it into Gaelic, I want them to be Gaelic speaking and raised as Gaels as I was.

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

I don't know about naming a child directly after a character. However, if I really really liked a name and it wasn't too obvious where it was from, then maybe I would...

I named a dog Strider once (Lord of the Rings, of course), so I would definitely name pets after characters.
