One of the biggest features of Hogwarts Legacy is its rich customization menu. There, you can choose what your character looks like (including hairstyles, eye color, and complexion), what they sound like, and whether you want them to sleep in the dormitory for witches or wizards.

That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the best names to use for your Hogwarts Legacy character that are just bursting with magic.

Best Harry Potter-inspired names for your Hogwarts Legacy character

It’s only natural that you might feel heavily inspired by the names of existing characters from the Harry Potter universe—after all, how can one beat a name like Horace Slughorn? While you are allowed to name your Hogwarts Legacy avatar Sirius Black or Hermione Granger, we recommend going for a more creative approach and try to emulate how that universe works. That is what we did in the list below:

  • Persephone Montague
  • Andromeda Edgecombe
  • Artemis Bagshot
  • Althea Dippet
  • Odysseus Warrington
  • Tristan Twycross
  • Lilith Scrimgeour
  • Merlin Longbottom
  • Troilus Grubbly-Plank
  • Penelope Shacklebolt

As you can see, you can choose a name inspired by different mythologies and place your character in one of the famous wizarding families. Who knows, maybe your Hogwarts Legacy character was the grandmother of the well-known Auror Kingsley Shacklebolt?

We hope you find enough inspiration from any of these approaches and come up with a truly unique wizarding name, deserving of your magical prowess. Let us know in the comments what name you settle on, and don’t miss our other Hogwarts Legacy guides.
