Here's Why Harry Potter Named His Son 'Albus Severus'

Have you ever wondered why Harry Potter named his son after Professor Severus Snape despite the character being mean to him throughout the entire series? Well you’re in luck because author J.K. Rowling is revealing why he did it!

Harry’s son is named “Albus Severus” after Dumbledore and of course, Snape.

Here is the question that Jo responded to: “Why did you pick Snape to name Harry’s kid after? I’m genuinely curious as he was nothing but abusive towards everyone.”

“Snape died for Harry out of love for Lily. Harry paid him tribute in forgiveness and gratitude,” she wrote in response. “I’ve got to say this: you lot have been arguing about Snape for years. My timeline just exploded with love & fury yet again. Never change x”

After that tweet, Twitter exploded and Jo returned to discuss the topic for several hours.
