Why the hell did Harry name one of his kids after Snape? Yes, Snape was a good guy all along, and probably saved a lot of people by putting his life on the line, but that doesn’t change the fact that he was a complete douchenozzle to Harry for 6 years, amirite?

You're forgetting that it wasn't just Harry he bullied. He was just a terrible person to a lot of innocent people. I completely agree with you. Snape put his **** on the line more than almost anyone else during the war (nobody else willingly went into Tom's midst and lied directly to his face for over a year straight) and was absolutely essential to Tom's downfall, but he wasn't someone you'd want to name someone after.

But you know, after all the shit that went down, perhaps he was a little sparkly-eyed towards Snape after he was revealed to be the good guy. At least, long enough to have a kid and name him after the guy.
And Harry Potter did practically see Snape's whole live in the pensive (I think it was?) I certainly felt differently and more caringly toward Snape after that.

You know, I read something ages ago that I agree with - when Harry saw Snape being bullied in the Pensive, he could have seen it as something he had in common with Snape (being bullied) and it would have made Snape be more "human" to him, but all Harry seemed interested in was his father, which I guess would be expected of an orphan, but I just felt that it could have changed his entire outlook of Snape, instead of slightly changing his outlook of his father.

I read this book called " Harry Potter should have died" and there was a part saying something about that line. It was like Snape didn't mean he saw no difference in Hermione's teeth it was he didn't see a difference between the badness of the spell on her and the one on Goyle.

I think that Harry was trying to "make up" for what his dad did to Snape as a kid. I mean, Snape had it rough anyway, but I'm sure that if James and crew didn't pick on the guy so much. And it would make total sense for Harry to try to (literally) repent for the sins of his father. I think of it as his giving Snape a second chance through his own kid. Besides, it's middle name territory we're talking. It's not like the kid is Severus Albus.

Sirius was James Potter's (Jr) last name:

-Bill and Fleur's children were named Victoire, Dominique and Louis
-Charlie Weasley had no children and never married
-Percy and Audrey's children were named Molly and Lucy
-George married Angelina Johnson and their children were named Fred and Roxanne
-Luna and Rolf's children (twins!) were named Lorcan and Lysander
-Harry and Ginny's children's full names are James Sirius, Albus Severus and Lily Luna Potter
-Draco and Asteria child's full name is Scorpius Hyperion Malfoy

I've been saying this ever since I read the epilogue for the first time. I'm just really glad to see that someone agrees with me. I would never name my child after someone who treated me as horribly as Snape treated Harry, regardless of how "brave" the person was.

But Snape resented Harry in a way because due to the striking resemblance between Harry and James, it reminded him of how badly he was treated as a kid by James. He also had to deal with the guilt of basically handing over Lily, whom he was in love with, so he was just a bitter man. But everything he did after that was for Harry's life.

I'm not denying that Snape was a hero, and that his actions did save Harry's life.

But that doesn't quite make up for such petty behaviour towards Harry when he was a teacher - yeah, he was bullied as a kid by James, but when you're an adult, you have to grow up a bit and get over it.

Yes, he was a hero, but he still abused his power as a teacher to bully Harry, so I don't understand why Harry would name a kid after him.

Snape had to be mean to Harry because if he was nice to him Voldemort would have known what was up and everything would have been ruined. When Harry was looking in the Pensieve at Snape's memories, Dumbledore said "After all this time, Severus?" and Snape sain "Always." He still loved Lily and therefore came to love Harry, his last piece of her. He resented him a little in the begining because he was James's son, but he came to care for him over the years. He was the bravest man I ever knew.

im guessing you didnt thouroughly read the books. because in those 6 year he might have been a douche but he also did whatever it took to protect harry. snape died for harry albus severus potter was named after the 2 headmasters that died to protect harry. snape was the bravest man harry potter ever knew. therefore as a reminder, its his childs name. the same child with the exact eyes as his mother lily potter, snapes life long love.

I think he names his child that because without Snape, Harry probally would have died. Snape tried to protect Harry in the first book from Quirrel. Dumbledore and Snape had a plan so Harry could destroy all the horcruxes and live. Snape faked being on the dark side so he could get information from Death Eaters, risking his life full-out. Snape DIED for Harry. He didn't like Harry because he was James' son. But he was also Lily's, so he did kinda like him I guess. So I would name my child after him...

"Albus Severus" One of Harry's many talents is naming kids. Seriously touching though. The best thing about Harry is his heart. He seemed to identify with Snape somewhat and felt that Snape deserved some respect after he died after being hated by everyone yet being so brave. The war against Voldemort would not have been won without him.
