Harry Potter Dog Name Considerations

Perhaps you are a member of the Harry Potter fandom community. What better way to acknowledge your love for Harry and his friends than by naming your dog something associated with the books or movies? Some individuals name their dogs not after characters, but after varying spells that Harry, Hermione, or Ron cast throughout the story. Others, such as basketball player Kobe Bryant,  choose names such as "Poof" which is not a definitive Harry Potter name, but is magical nonetheless. 

Of course, one can always choose obvious names such as Fang, Hagrid's dog, or consider Fluffy, the three-headed dog in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Buckbeak is a bird who first belongs to Hagrid, then ends up in the service of Sirius Black. Hagrid's dragon, Norbert, is also an adorable name for a dog. Perhaps one of the most obvious (and adorable) names is Dobby, named in honor of Dobby the Elf. Dobby would be a perfect name for a small, quiet dog. Certainly, a person who craves originality will appreciate the uniqueness of Harry Potter names. Fawkes is a name honoring Dumbledore's phoenix. Nagini, Voldemort's snake, is a great name for fans of the villain. Whatever you decide to name your pup, there are dozens of brilliant Harry Potter-inspired names to choose from.
