    Animal Names in Harry Potter:

    As with almost any book, there is bound to be a few animals within its pages and Harry Potter is no exception. Here is a list of some of the more notable animals in Harry Potter.


    While there are not many pet owls I am aware of these days, any fan of Harry Potter could find a use for the name Harry’s owl as a name for one of their pets.


    This would not a great name for a pet rabbit but why not use it to name a dog or fierce little kitten.


    Classic name that can easily be used for any pet. Bonus points if it is used for the name of an amphibious pet.


    This would be a unique name for a dog given it is the name of Hermione’s cat so if you are looking for a good Harry Potter-themed cat name this is your best bet.


    You don’t see a lot of dragons these days so why not use this name for a tamer pet like a cat or a dog.


    This is a great name for a cat or small dog although fans of the franchise know it’s already a great name for a dog.


    It isn’t the most traditional name but it is more subtle than most. Bring this name back to life by naming a pet after it.

    Here are a few more obscure or less popular animals from the series.

    • Errol
    • Nagini
    • Pigwidgeon (Pig for short)
    • Aragog
    • Arnold

    A great many of the names above are very unique and are not made for everyone. If you are a Harry Potter fan, these names should give you dome things to go on and spark your memory about other characters you might like.

    Most likely if you go with one of the more obscure or unique character names there is a chance not many people will get the reference. I tried to pick names that were featured in both the book and the movies and that should have covered the major ones.
