Harry Potter (character)

Harry James Potter is the title character and protagonist of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. The majority of the books' plot covers seven years in the life of the orphan Potter, who, on his eleventh birthday, learns he is a wizard. Thus, he attends Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to practise magic under the guidance of the kindly headmaster Albus Dumbledore and other school professors. Harry also discovers that he is already famous throughout the novel's magical community, and that his fate is tied with that of Lord Voldemort, the internationally feared Dark Wizard and murderer of his parents, Lily and James.

Harry's birthday is July 31, 1980. J. K. Rowling's birthday is July 31, 1966.

While the majority of the names in the Harry Potter series have root meanings in Mythology, the Latin language, and Astronomy, the name "Harry Potter" comes from Rowling's personal experiences. The name "Harry" is Rowling's favorite boy name, and "Potter" was the name of Rowling's neighbors from her childhood.
