Harry Potter obsessed mum slammed for naming daughter after character

Harry Potter obsessed mum slammed for naming daughter after character

A mum obsessed with Harry Potter has been slammed for naming her daughter after a character

It’s no secret that Harry Potter has taken the world by storm since its debut, with millions of dedicated fans leading the pottermania. Though one mum took her dedication to the next level, naming her daughter after one of its popular characters.

The daughter took to Reddit (via The Mirror) to talk about how her mum and dad are huge Harry Potter fans, being members of the Harry Potter fan club, frequently rewatching the films and planning family events, like birthdays, around their obsession with the series, much to their daughter's dismay.

While the Potter character in question was never named, it was confirmed that it was one of the most popular female characters in the franchise… so take your guesses.

Her siblings didn’t fare much better either, reportedly being named after some famous Star Wars characters.

The daughter stated: "It has honestly been hell. I have a stupid name and since we were little my parents have forced stuff like Harry Potter, Star Wars, Marvel movies, etc, down our throats. Everything is about dragons and magic and blah blah blah. I'm so sick of it.”

Other Reddit users quickly rushed to her defence, slamming the mother for forcing her interests through something as important as someone’s name.

One Redditor said: "It's a shame that in their obsession and absorption in their fandom, they've really killed some cool books and movies and stuff for you and your siblings. Lots of people enjoy these things without making them their whole life."

Unfortunately, with the announcement of the new Harry Potter TV reboot show, it doesn’t look like things are going to get much better for her, as you can guarantee her parents will be tuning in when it airs…
