All students receive their Hogwarts acceptance letters on their 11th birthday, and begin school the following September. Those born on or after September 1st end up having to wait until the next September to attend Hogwarts. This explains why people like Hermione Granger (born in 1979) and Sirius Black (born in 1959) are a year older than most of their classmates (born in 1980 and 1960).
This fact is actually false:
The babies who played Baby Harry in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s/Philosopher’s Stone are actually credited as the Saunders Triplets. The boy who played Albus Severus Potter is Arthur Bowen.
I apologize for the lack of activity since I started this blog, my computer is pretty much useless, so I’ve been trying to make due on my iPod, but it’s really a pain. I can’t edit the blog and add in index just yet, but I promise I will once I get the chance! I will be open to <b>Fact Submissions</b> through ASK BOX ONLY, since I can’t see who submits things on mobile. Facts will be credited to the people who send them in. I hope this will make up for my absence. Thank you.
Hogwarts is not located in England. It is actually located in Scotland.
The name “Remus” comes from the brothers Romulus and Remus, the legendary brothers who fought to the death over the control of Rome, having been raised by wolves. Because of this, some fans speculated that Remus had a brother, but “Romulus” is merely the code name used by Lupin for Potterwatch. Remus’s intense rivalry with Romulus indicates Lupin’s ongoing struggle with his other side, the werewolf.
"Lupin" is derived from "lupus(a)", Latin for "wolf". Lupin thus means "wolf-like" in Latin, and is also the name of a flower. Canis Lupus is the scientific name for wolf. To be described as "lupine" means to "resemble a wolf."
Aside from Remus’ surname translating into “wolf”, Remus’ father’s name was Lyall, which, according to Harry Potter Wiki, also means “wolf”.
"Lyall" may be from a Scottish surname which was derived from the Old Norse given name "Liulfr" (which was derived in part from "úlfr", meaning "wolf"). "Lyall" is also a common surname (most common in America).
Lyall Lupin’s name literally translates into “Wolf Wolf”.
It is said that J.K. Rowling was planning on making Dean Thomas and Seamus Finnigan a couple, but she ended up not doing it because she didn’t want to take too much attention away from the Trio. Therefor technically, yes, Deamus could be considered canon.
Teddy Lupin’s first name isn’t actually Theodore, like some believe. It’s Edward. That goes for Ted Tonks, as well.
It is possible that Ron Weasley and Harry Potter had actually met when they were babies. With Molly Weasley and Lily Potter having been pregnant around the same time, and having also both been members of the original Order of the Phoenix, they would have known or at least known of each other. Between Harry’s birth and Lily and James’ deaths, Ron and Harry could have crossed paths or even played together as infants.
