It’s hard to believe the Harry Potter generation is growing up and giving birth to a new group of fans (at least, I would hope.) And when it comes time to name those next-generation babies, what is a better source of inspiration than the wizard world itself? Granted, you may not want to name your kid Albus, Hagrid, or Severus, but there are plenty of Muggle-friendly baby names from Harry Potter that you can choose for your own child.
Most of these names are subtle enough to not cause any raised eyebrows, but your fellow HP pals will know what’s up. The names can act as a sort of secret handshake to the rest of your fellow fans, and you may even gain some new buddies along the way. I mean, if you have twin boys who are named Fred and George, then we are best friends who have just not met yet.
So if you already have a sweet Harry Potter-themed nursery and look forward to the day when you can introduce your own little one to Harry and his friends, why not go all out and opt for one of these names? I can guarantee that you’ll instill a lifelong love of reading with such a cool origin story for your kid’s own name. So read on to select a name that will make your baby’s arrival just a little more magical. (And no, none of the Dursleys made the cut.)
