Harry Potter

Harry became an Auror when he was 17.

Hermione's middle name was changed from Jane to Jean to avoid the same middle name as Dolores Umbridge.

The word "Quidditch" comes from the names of the balls: "Qu"- stands for Quaffle, "dd" - would stand for Bludger and "itch" stands for Snitch.

Voldemort's wand is made of yew, yew is symbolic for death and rebirth.

The name Voldemort comes from the French words meaning "Fly from death" which is basically what Voldemort and his people do.

The numbers are symbolic in the Harry Potter series:

  • For 3 there is a golden trio.
  • For 7 there are 7 players in a Quidditch team and 7 years to complete at Hogwarts. 7 is also the most powerful magical number, hence the reason Voldemort made 7 horcruxes.

Hedwig's death in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows represents Harry's loss of innocence and coming of age.

The actress who portrayed Moaning Myrtle was actually 37 years old and is the oldest person to ever portray a Hogwarts student.

The dementors were inspired by JK's depression she suffered year prior to the writing book.
