Rubeus Hagrid and Albus Dumbledore are not fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants names. The names were chosen for specific reasons to connect the two characters to each other as well as Harry. They are two of the most beloved characters in children’s literature and for good reason.
Harry’s father, James and his uncle Vernon were never fans of each other (not a newsflash I know) but there is a valid reason for the mutual dislike. Note: dislike is a weak word where Vernon Dursley is concerned; he loathed James Potter. Harry’s mother, Lily and his aunt, Petunia were not close sisters either. Harry took the brunt of Petunia’s guilt over this.
These and other clues into the lives of the Harry Potter series characters are given quite often in the world of Pottermore, an exclusive, interactive website to engage readers while reading the Harry Potter series. https://www.pottermore.com/en-us/. People of all ages engage in this entertaining and insightful website, myself included.
As a HUGE fan of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, I immensely enjoy every tidbit of information J.K. gives regarding backstory to the series. Rowling is a force to be reckoned with regarding her ability to keep the series alive and interesting. The books are so entwined with each other and well thought out that any aspiring writer could learn many tricks of the trade from her. So when she offers up new information, I greedily eat it up.
I am in awe of Rowling’s creativity and how fast if continues to flow out of her to keep her Potter fans intrigued. She is a creative genius.
In the beginning, I only gave partial information regarding her tidbits, the rest you will find in the below link. If you are like me and millions of other fans of the Harry Potter phenomenon, join in on the fun of Pottermore to learn more about the characters and events of the series. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
