During the podcast, naming of Harry and Ginny’s kids came up, and how they were all hamed after Harry’s ancestors and persons significant to Harry’s life.

Ginny has 5 brothers, 4 known to have children that will be taking names from the Weasley side, and Harry is an only child, and when choosing these names, the whole extended family is considered i.e. if someone else had already named a child “Fred”, then it’s unlikely that Fred would be given to another child (cousin or whatever).

I believe Jo took that into account and there was no male / sexist angle.

Again, no Canon Conclusions? Is this segment ever coming back? It is my favorite, and I miss it as well as Steve. Can anyone answer if Canon Conclusions is gone for good?!?

Avatar Image says:

With regard to the naming of children, Luna is probably closer to Ginny than she is to Harry, given they had lessons together, ran the DA together in the DH year, and probably spent a fair amount of time together in the post-DH year of school as well. Also Ginny says of Sirius “I care what happens to Sirius as much as you do”. She would have liked Albus Dumbledore (particularly because he didn’t punish her for opening the chamber of secrets when she feared she might be expelled). So there although there is a bit of a Harry-bias to the names, which is understandable given there are plenty of Weasleys to use up the names from her side of the family, there is plenty of Ginny’s influence in the namings as well.

With regard to Canon Conclusions, I would imagine it will appear shortly now the christmas specials are over, and Pottercast can resume its regular format. However, I would guess it unlikely that Steve will reappear while the court action is unresolved.

Aberforth’s Petting Zoo So, so wrong! :)

Avatar Image says:

No Melvin? Shame. I hope she talks about her book when she eventually comes back.

Avatar Image says:

Woo-hoo! Downloads and listens

They mentioned watching the documentary on Jo online.

Does anyone know how to do this?
