What's everyone's take on this? There was actually a serious discussion in a facebook group I'm in about someone wanting to name a girl Bellatrix and honestly that scares me a bit. Granted, some names are normal, but Bellatrix is just too weird.

And Sirius. I would never do that. I mean the kid'll go through life as "Are you serious?"

Yeah I would never name my kid Narcissa or Albus (haha Albus Severus) or ... Grindelwald, or anything like that. As much as I adore HP, that'd just be mean to the kid. Even Hermione would be weird. haha.gif

But the more reasonable names like Lily, Luna, Harry, Ron ... I would use those as middle names. To be honest I always liked the name Luna. And Ginevra's kind of a cool name. stuart.gif

^ I agree. I would also use those as middle names. I also really love the name James for a boy. But if it's a girl I really love the name Joanne tongue.gif

One of the "weirder" names I actually like is Andromeda. It's Greek, it has history. Besides, you could always call her Andi...

Let me just say that Ronald is an awesome name. And it works for both English and Spanish, It'd be cool to name one of my kids that.

Hermione's not bad compared to some of the names in HP....

There, for one, will be NO young Dedalus's in my house.

Hermione is actually a bit more common in the UK. But here in Canada if you named your kid Hermione everyone would know you were an HP fan. tongue.gif

My friend says she wishes she could name a son Sirius. But her last name is Lee, so that would be really bad. Sirius Lee. haha.gif This is, of course, if she gets married to someone with the same last name as her or keeps her last name and has her child keep it.


I love the names Lily, Harry, and Molly, so I would have no problem using those names. I also think Fleur and Lavender are beautiful names. And I think some other names in the series are fine to use, such as James, Luna, Ron, the other Weasley names, Dean, and probably more I can't think of.

LOL @ Sirius Lee.

I like the name James, but more as a middle name.
