Seriously, No One Can Name The New "Harry Potter" Houses

Long live House Wilypanther!

by ,

Everyone knows the Hogwarts houses, right? Chances are, you can rattle them off at the drop of a hat. They've been around for years.

But the houses for the American wizarding school, Ilvermorny, are pretty much brand new. Queen Rowling gifted them to us mere weeks ago. And they're...harder to remember?

Maybe everyone thought "Hufflepuff" was weird at first, too. Maybe it's just that they're new. But remembering the words Pukwudgie, Thunderbird, Horned Serpent, and Wampus is actually kinda difficult.

So we journeyed to San Diego Comic-Con, Land of Knowing Harry Potter Fans, to see if we're the only ones having trouble remembering the new house names. And, no, we're definitely not.
