Join sister and brother duo Al (the Harry Potter Super Fan & Word Nerd) and Erik (the Harry Potter Novice & Audio Geek) as they have quick chats about various characters, places, spells, or creatures and tell you all about why the names are so awesome and clever.
One thing is clear, J.K. Rowling used mythology, lore, cultural references, and historical legends to create multi-layered and metaphorical names. So, whether you're a super fan or brand new to the Harry Potter universe, you're sure to find some new and interesting layer to this magical series!
