If you decide to give your character a name that’s any longer than two syllables, you had better believe that people are going to mispronounce it.

The Harry Potter books are no exception. People managed with Harry and Ron okay, but the second it came to Voldemort and Hermione, the problems started.

Long story short, by book number four, J.K. Rowling decided to do something about it.

If you were anything like me, the passage in The Goblet of Fire came in pretty handy (I’d definitely been pronouncing Hermione’s name wildly wrong up until that point).

Maybe Rowling should have worked in a similar passage about Voldemort?
