Mothstar gives warrior names to characters from the children’s fantasy series, Harry Potter.
Today I’m going to be going through some Harry Potter characters and giving them Warrior names!
Harry Potter – Nightflame
I first considered Lightningheart, Sparkshade or Flashfire to represent his scar, but he should not only be named after his appearance. Nightflame is a good one, as ‘Night’ could represent him having part of Voldemort inside him, as well as his dark hair, whereas ‘-flame’ shows him lighting up the world in defeating Voldemort. I decided to settle with Nightflame.
Ron Weasley – Lionstride
I decided on this name not just because of his red hair, but because he is so brave and loyal. In the first book he literally sacrificed himself in the chess game and got seriously injured! Sure, he is scared of spiders, but that doesn’t make any difference – he’s been through a lot. He’s been poisoned, had his leg broken when Sirius pulled him under the Whomping Willow and had to go on the run for the last year of Hogwarts! That is why he deserves this name.
Hermione Granger – Tawnyowl
This name is adorable, but that’s not the only reason I chose it! Hermione is extremely clever and does amazingly in every subject (apart from Divination, that is). Owls are associated with being wise so it fits perfectly. As for ‘Tawny’, Hermione’s eyes and hair are brown. Also, a tawny owl is an actual species of owl so it works well.
Draco Malfoy – Foxshade
‘Fox’ comes from him being sneaky and sly, just like a fox. Foxes are known for being solitary, just as Draco was when Voldemort tasked him with killing Albus Dumbledore – he didn’t want Snape’s help or anyone else’s. ‘-shade’ stems from Draco lurking in the shadows and being pulled to the dark side by his parents. These are the reasons why I named him Foxshade.
Severus Snape – Ravenwhisper
I got the prefix ‘Raven’ from Snape’s dark eyes, hair and clothes, as well as his intelligence – Snape created many of his own spells and was talented at many subjects. Ravens are often associated with loss, which matches Snape perfectly due to him losing Lily. ‘-whisper’ comes from Snape’s shy, quiet personality as a child and his ability to silence his class without much effort. Whispering is also associated with secrecy and Snape has to keep his loyalties a secret from Voldemort.
Minerva McGonagall – Mothflower
I adore this name <3
But that’s not why I chose it! Moths represent transformation and change and Minerva is an Animagus! They can also represent determination and she was definitely determined to save Hogwarts. Minerva can be strict, but she is also kind and colourful – like a flower that’s just bloomed. That’s where the suffix ‘-flower’ comes from. Flowers also represent love and that was something Minerva tried her hardest to get for her entire life. She had to reject the one she loved to stay in touch with the wizarding world and when she did get married her husband died.
Tom Riddle/ Voldemort – Whitethistle
‘White’ comes from Voldemort’s unnatural skin colour and the fact that he is cold to others and the colour white represents freezing. Voldemort caused a lot of death and white is also the colour of skulls. ‘-thistle’ comes from his sharp and mean nature, much like thistles and the fact that he has hurt so many people, just like thistles spike people.
Ginny Weasley – Sparkbloom
The first part of Ginny’s name – Spark, comes from her energetic personality and her speed as a skilled Quidditch player. Sparks represent ‘a small amount of something, such as an idea, that has the potential to become something greater’ – just as Ginny changed from just being Ron’s little sister to being Harry’s girlfriend and future wife! ‘Bloom’ comes from her blooming personality, from a shy and nervous girl around Harry to a confident young woman.
Fred and George Weasley – Firespring and Smokeheart
For Fred, Firespring fits him nicely, as he has a fiery and mischievous personality and is also exceedingly energetic. Meanwhile Smokeheart works well for George, as smoke comes with fire. As for ‘heart’ – he has certainly had to go through a lot, especially when Fred died. Together, Firespring and Smokeheart sound great together and alone.
