Calling all Harry Potter lovers, these adorable baby names pay homage to the most loved ‘boy who lived’ and all that comes with the magical world of Hogwarts.

As Harry Potter is now at an end (cue the tears), naming your baby something like Luna, Arabella or even George enables you to keep the magic alive in your life.

Not a die hard Potter fan? Alas, these names are classic, proper and down right adorable!

Here are 38 baby names inspired by J.K. Rowling’s loveable Harry Potter characters.

41 Harry Potter inspired baby names

1. Harry

Of course number 1 on the list is the lead character of the story. Harry is a strong yet sweet name just as his character portrays.

2. Hermione

Hailing as Harry’s bright best friend, this girls name is classic and pretty and not to mention Emma Watson played Hermione which makes this name even more of a favourite.

3. Ronald

Always good for a laugh, the third part of the trio of Harry and Hermione, Ronald can be shortened to Ron too!

4. Ginny

As the sweet and innocent young sister of Ron, Ginny is a very cute girls name.

5. Draco

Although not the nicest of characters, Draco as a boys name is strong and powerful. Spoiler: he turns out to be not so nasty in the end!

6. Sirius

As Harry’s ‘lunatic’ uncle, Sirius is a pretty cool boys name.

7. Luna

Like the moon, this name shines as bright as the eclectic character.

8. Fred

A classic, need we say more?

9. George

A name fit for Royalty (our little Prince George), George is a strong and in demand name so jump on it now!

10. Albus

A leader of a name, Albus is one of 3 names the principal of Hogwarts claims.

11. Minerva

Were you a secret Professor McGonagall fan? Minerva is her first name, and a cool one at that (she can transform into a cat, no big deal).

12. Severus

A good guy at heart, Serverus is a unique name for your little one.

13. Neville

The secret Heroine of the Harry Potter story, Neville is an extremely cute name at that.

14. Arthur

The head of the Wesley family and also a part of the royal family, Arthur is a classic.

15. Fleur

French chic. Fleur enters Harry’s world when she is a part of the Triwizard tournament.

16. Seamus

Seamus Finnigan is his full name and we love both!

17. Viktor

A Bulgarian wizard that takes on a dragon = a strong baby boy name.

18. Colin

Say cheese! Your baby boy may grow up to be a budding photographer just like Colin Creevey.

19. Lavender

Love the colour purple or the scent of the stunning flower? Lavender is a very pretty and beautiful name.

20. Dean

A Gryffindor student, Dean was always a good egg and with 2 first names you have 2 choices in Dean Thomas.

21. Cedric

Swoon! The passing of Cedric Digory will remain one of the saddest scenes in the Harry Potter films, but his name lives on.

22. Cho

Short and sweet! And Harry’s first kiss too.

23. Pavarti

With an identical twin sister called Padma, if you love a good P name, these are for you!

24. Remus

A werewolf, Remus is a strong and powerful name.

25. Sybill

This name is quite old-school but the magical powers of Professor ‘Sybill’ Trelawney has made it popular once more.

26. Bellatrix

Shorten to Bella if you prefer!

27. Dolores

A sweet name and if you’re just as much as a fan of the TV series ‘Westworld’ this name represents a strong woman!

28. Olympe

She found love with the gentle giant, Hagrid. Olympe is an out of the box name.

29. Rita

A budding and cunning journalist, Rita’s name does her proud.

30. Argus

Argus Filch wasn’t our favourite character but his name is quite lovely.

31. Rubeus

Named after everyone’s favourite character, Hagrid, this name is sure to get attention and praise.

32. Horace

Shortens to Ace!

33. Dobby

Too adorable to even talk about!

34. Rufus

A big part of the Ministry of Magic, Rufus Scrimgeour’s name is definitely cooler than his character.

35. Gilderoy

The most suave character in Harry Potter in our opinion, the name Gilderoy Lockhart is undeniably chic.

36. Molly

Sickly sweet one minute and sending a Howler to her son the next, we LOVE Molly Weasley!

37. Alastor

Liked Mad-Eye Moody but not so much his name? Lucky for you his first name is the adorable, Alastor.

38. Lucius

We actually love this villains name, the way it slips off the tongue is just so mysterious!
