It must be awkward for other people named Harry in the wizarding world.... "Hi, I'm Harry!" "HARRY POTTER?" "Ummmm, no..." amirite?

"Hi! I'm Harry!"

"No, wait! WAIT!"

I didn't reply to myself. I replied to my comment.

"Harry Potter?"
"Well, I guess I do like making pots and I haven't shaved in a few days, but geez man."

Well that's why he named his son Albus Serverus, to avoid anymore of that repeat name awkwardness.

@Ariodante Or being a muggle-born with a last name like Black.

Exhibit A: Rebecca Black.

She is part mermaid on her mother's side, which explains why she can't sing on dry land.

I always wondered how Ron knew the first day, when Harry just introduced himself as "Harry", that it was Harry Potter. I mean, it would be a little awkward if it wasn't Harry Potter.

@Chromana The scar?

But Ron said, (roughly quoting) "Harry...Potter?" And Harry said, "Yeah." and Ron pointed to his forehead and said, "Can I see?"

Yeah I guess but I assume that he caught a glimpse of it at some point and was asking for a closer look.

@Chromana Yeah I guess but I assume that he caught a glimpse of it at some point and was asking for a closer look.

I just reread that part of the book, and I realized that up there I was quoting the movie. :P In the book, Fred and George see his scar, and then tell Ron about it, and Ron knows before they meet who he is. :)

Yeah, and people named Voldemort.

@You think it sucks for them?

That's what I was going to say. I'd totally go with it if I were them. "Yeah, that's right! I'm THE Harry Potter! Yeah... killed Voldemort as a baby and all. Yep, I know, I'm awesome... What? Oh the scar? Yeah, I got it removed with Wizard Plastic Surgery..."

to add the name. Saying "You think it sucks for them?" As a muggle named voldemort

It sucks for us muggles named Harry too. Constantly getting stopped at airports since our brooms don't fly, can't cast a spell on people who say "omg are you Harry Potter?". Unfair on so many levels.

To be fair Harry's really the only one with a normal name besides the Weasleys

As opposed to Hannah, Justin, Collin, Oliver, Angelina, Susan, Vincent, Gabrielle, Anthony, Gregory, Lee, Ernie, Natalie, Peter, Stan, Bob, James, Lily, Alicia, Dean, Ted, Emmeline, Stan etc ...

@FreeMustacheRides (Your+name+(optional)): Well, EMMELINE is a bit of a stretch.

I don't know anyone named Ernie either xD and kiwimango, OBVIOUSLY the person was talking about main characters. Most of us normal people don't obcess over every word of the book and memorize extremely minor characters that were mention once or twice in thousands of pages xD

@Agent_Michael_Scarn James, Lily, and Peter were definitely mentioned more than once or twice.

What about Bob though? I've read all the books many types and I don't remember any Bobs at all.

Okay, that's just PEACHY. but like I said, I don't obcess over it(: and sure if you want to be EXACT, it probably was 1 or 2 more times than twice xD god I didn't think it mattered that much.... lmao

The weirder names are from old English literature (Hermione), Greek mythology (Andromeda), translations from different languages (Voldemort), stuff like that.

No, is it today?

Says the person who overused "Not many comments on the POTD."

@NoSoapRadio In what way is that at all relevant?

"Harry Potter is getting old and overrated. Can the world as a whole move on?"

The "not many comments on the POTD" was getting old and completely overrated. Even though we are deleting the comments now, people still do it. Can the world as a whole move on?

All's fair in first commenting.

y smilie for the hebrew translation of "POTD"

@1153233

You guys are all still addicted to Harry Potter? Sad...

@NoSoapRadio You guys are all still addicted to Harry Potter? Sad...

Were you trying to support your comment with a fake anon or were you actually talking to someone other than yourself?

@Christ_Jesus I agree it's kinda getting old

I think they can officially get over it when the next Harry Potter movie comes out, after that then it's just over-kill.
