‘Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban’
Hagrid’s love for strange (and especially dangerous!) creatures is not a secret, but the fact that his first name is a nod to an alchemical colour might be less well known!
In one of the latest exclusive entries by J.K. Rowling released on Pottermore.com a few weeks ago, we learnt that colour played its part in the naming of Hagrid. Find out more in the ‘Colours’ entry, which you can unlock in the Moment ‘The Campsite’.
Happy birthday Hagrid!
