Looking for a Defense Against the Dark Arts prof, @jk_rowling? Where do I apply? Trump, Death Eaters - I got this!

Although the excerpt from Cursed Child is the first time we've seen the full name on paper, die-hard fans know that J.K. actually revealed Myrtle's full name in a tweet last year.

.@HotmHayles @lankytwat Moaning Myrtle's full name was Myrtle Elizabeth Warren.

She also clarified that Myrtle is NOT named after Elizabeth Warren.

Nothing to do with the United States Elizabeth Warren I hasten to add! 'Elizabeth' is just one of those classic British middle names.
