Turns out he wasn't the only character with an anagram in his name. Check out these other anagrams in Harry Potter that you definitely didn't notice.

1. Dolores Umbridge = Go, Sir Dumbledore!

Should have seen this one coming.

3. Harry Potter = Part hero, try!

Harry Potter struggled with different aspects of himself throughout the entire book series: Part of him was hero, part of him was Voldemort. His subconscious and anagram were shouting, "Part hero, try!"

4. Lavender Brown = Brand New Lover

5. Seamus Finnigan = I'm a Guinness fan

Hmm, I don't remember this being a big part of the books.

6. Hermione Granger = Ring here Ron, game?

We all know she was the one that eventually had the balls to propose from this anagram of what she must have said.

7. Ron Weasley = Ye' rose lawn

Just in case you weren't sure if the curtains matched the carpet.

8. And possibly the most shocking of all, Luna Lovegood = Luna love good
