You will face many tough choices in Hogwarts Legacy. A well-known choice is which house you will be sorted into, but you must also decide what kind of witch or wizard you will be. This includes picking a name, which may leave you wondering how to decide on a name for your Hogwarts Legacy character.
How to pick a name for Hogwarts Legacy
There are a couple of ways you can decide a name for your witch/wizard in Hogwarts Legacy. You can use an existing name or a variation from the books or films, use a Harry Potter Name Generator, or come up with one on your own.
For those who need inspiration, a name generator is a great place to get ideas or grab a name. There are various name generators with a Harry Potter theme, or you can use some standard witch and wizard name generators. Here are some generators to help you pick your name for Hogwarts Legacy.
- Inglenook Name Generator
- Bloomsbury Harry Potter Name Generator
- Fanbolt Harry Potter Name Generator
- Fantasy Witch Name Generator
- Fantasy Wizard Name Generator
Alternatively, you can use a pre-existing character's name for inspiration. If you fell in love with a character from the books or films, why not use their last name and play a distant relative? There is also no rule saying there can't be two characters who share the same name; it happens all the time in real life.
Lastly, you can flex your magical brain and create your own name. This can be taken from real names, place names, or mixing words together. You can combine words and names to create an enchanting name that fits in with Harry Potter, Luna Lovegood, Remus Lupin, and more.
