When it comes to fictional universes, few are more well-crafted than the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. J.K. Rowling created a world that would enamor millions of people for years. It also happens to be one of the few book series adapted into films that were consistently good with each instalment.
If you didn't already know, Harry Potter centers around a society hidden from non-magic folk where wizards, goblins, and all sorts of magical creatures live and thrive. Centering around the young Harry Potter, seven books and eight movies were written all together, with screenplays and prequel movies in development to further enhance the world.
As it stands, the number of books has led to a serious amount of witches and wizards appearing in the franchise. Some of them were integral to the story, and others were just side-characters that we barely got to know. All of their names are difficult to remember unless you're a serious Harry Potter fan.
Potterheads, your time has come. Go on a return trip through the Wizarding World as you try to name these 35 magical witches and wizards- whether they're from Voldemort's Army or Ravenclaw House. Are you skilled enough to guess all of their names correctly?
