Move over, Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin and Hufflepuff – we’ve got four new Houses to base our entire sense of self on now.
A software engineer named Federico Ian Cervantez claims he’s found the names of the Houses in JK Rowling’s North American wizarding school Ilvermorny, after stumbling across hidden code in an ‘under construction’ quiz on the Harry Potter website Pottermore.
If he’s right, American witches and wizards could be sorted into…Horned Serpent, Wampus, Thunderbird or Pukwudgie.
The names revealed in the site above appear to be named after creatures from Native American folklore, following on from Rowling’s – at times controversial – inclusion of Navajo beliefs as part of her fictional ‘History of Magic in North America’ series.
The House names, linked to an unpublished webpage on Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, appear in the following section of code.
