J.K. Rowling Reveals Why Harry Potter Named His Son After Snape

J.K. Rowling is opening up about the reasoning behind Harry Potter’s decision to name his son after Professor Severus Snape.

If you don’t remember, Harry’s son receives the name “Albus Severus” in honor of both Dumbledore and Snape.

Here is the question that Jo responded to: “Why did you pick Snape to name Harry’s kid after? I’m genuinely curious as he was nothing but abusive towards everyone.”

“Snape died for Harry out of love for Lily. Harry paid him tribute in forgiveness and gratitude,” she wrote in response. “I’ve got to say this: you lot have been arguing about Snape for years. My timeline just exploded with love & fury yet again. Never change x”

After that tweet, Twitter exploded and Jo returned to discuss the topic for several hours.
