15 Harry Potter Inspired Baby Girl Names

Are you looking for a baby name with a cool back story? Are you a bit of a Harry Potter nerd? Well I most certainly am! I've put together some of my favourite girl names from the Harry Potter series. Looking at these names made me want to read the books all over again!

1. Lavender

Lavender Brown was a Gryffindor student in Harry's year and briefly was Ron Weasley's girlfriend.

2. Poppy

Perhaps a lesser known character, Poppy Pomfrey was the school nurse at Hogwarts.

3. Lily

Murdered by Lord Voldemort before the series begins, Lily Potter was the mother of Harry Potter.

4. Molly

A much loved character, Molly Weasley was mother to Ron and the rest of the Weasley clan, and a prominent motherly figure in Harry's life.

5. Katie

A chaser on the Gryffindor Quidditch, some Harry Potter fans may remember Katie Bell being cursed by a magic necklace on the snowy path between Hogwarts and Hogsmeade.

6. Hermione

Muggle-born Hermione Granger, the heroine of the Harry Potter series, was a student with brains beyond her years. Best friend to Harry and Ron, and (SPOILER ALERT) Ron's future wife.

7. Minerva

Professor Minerva McGonagall was head of Gryffindor house. McGonagall was also a member of the First and Second Order of the Phoenix.

8. Luna

Luna Lovegood was a quirky Ravenclaw who was often teased by many of the other students due to her strange behaviour and odd beliefs. A very interesting character!

9. Fleur

French student Fleur Delacour participated in the Triwizard Tournament representing Beauxbatons, and later married Ron's brother, Bill Weasley.

10. Amelia

Not a very well know character, but a beautiful name, Amelia Bones was the Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.

11. Helga

One of the four founders of Hogwarts, Helga Hufflepuff played a key part in the development of Hogwarts and the magical world we all adore.

12. Angelina

A Gryffindor student two years above Harry, Angelina Johnson was Quidditch Chaser and captain. She attended Yule Ball with Fred Weasley but later went on to marry his twin brother George.

13. Bellatrix

An all round evil witch, Bellatrix Lestrange was a Death Eater and sister of Narcissa Malfoy, cousin of Sirius Black. She later went on to kill her cousin Sirius. Bellatrix met her demise when she was killed by Molly Weasly in the Deathly Hallows (Woohoo, go Molly!).

14. Alice

Mother of Neville Longbottom, Alice Longbottom was a member of the original Order of the Phoenix, but was tortured into insanity by Bellatrix Lestrange.

15. Ginny

Only daughter and youngest child of Arthur and Molly Weasley, Ginny Weasley was a Gryffindor Quidditch Seeker and Chaser, member of Dumbledore's Army, and Harry's main love interest.
