Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

I like it, but some of the fan sites went ballistic over it, lol... They all wanted to know how Harry could ever inflict that awful name on his kid...

I think they were thinking about the Muggle world, though... in the Wizarding world, the names should have greater meaning...

Why did Ron and Hermione name their son Hugo? LOL. I laughed when I read that.

Re: Discuss the Epilogue

When I read that I could not help but smile. It was actually very fitting. I could never have imagined a better ending. I was not going to be happy if Harry had died. I am so glad all those rumors were proven false. Harry finally has a happy and normal life. And a family to boot.

Re: Discuss the Epilogue

Nope, Gabrielle is Fleur's little sister. And she wouldn't be on the Hogwarts Express because she went to school in France (and would have been far older than school age because the Epilogue is set 19 years later).

Victoire is most likely Fleur and Bill's daughter. She would be the right age (at maximum 18, especially since James reports Teddy has come to see her off, making him finished with school at 19 or 20) and Lily notes that if Teddy marries Victoire then he would really be a member of the family since Victoire would be her cousin.

Re: Discuss the Epilogue

With the name Albus Serverus did anyone else get the felling that the eldest was named James Sirius? :smileyhappy: Wonder what Lily's middle name is?

I loved the names picked out and that Harry called Severus one of the bravest men he had ever known!! I just wished she had put in if Harry and Dudley had become chummy in their later years!!

Re: Discuss the Epilogue

I thought maybe Dora myself. I think we can certainly safely rule Delores, Bellatrix, or Cissy out though.

Yes, I'm sorry about this. Something was nagging at me since I answered. Thank you for catching it.

I think we can safely rule out "Petunia" as well, lol...! But we should also consider "Molly" as a possible name...

Actually, Psychee, I did think of Molly first off when the question was raised. But "Lily Molly"? JKR is better with names than that!

Victoire

I was thiking Victoire was Viktor Krum's child
also i'm a little confused
JK Rowling said that by the end of the book we would know what harry's parents did for a living and what dudley saw when the dementors came at him
why weren't those things in the book??
