I had planned on going to bed, but then I found your blog and checked the Hufflepuff tag. Now I'm in my PJs reading slytherpuff fanfics and crying over Helga and Salazar's doomed love whilst shamelessly reblogging your photo- and gifsets.


Aah! As shameless Helga x Salazar shippers, we can sympathise with that. And thank you for the reblogs! :)

GODRIC (pronounced GAHD-rik)

↳ Means "power of god", derived from Old English god combined with ric “power, rule”.

Out of curiosity, could it be possible that "Bold Griffindor, from wild moor" is a clue that Godric was Black. Another English work of literature comes to mind, Othello, the moor of Venice. Could this be JK's Shakespearean nod?

Possibly! The most likely explanation, though, is that it’s geographical - as with the other founders. “Sweet Hufflepuff, from valley broad” for example. Given that Godric’s Hollow (his birthplace) is situated the West Country, the “wild moor” probably refers to the surrounding moors of that area. It could be that the phrase “from wild moor” has a double meaning, of course, and it’s definitely open to interpretation.

"Hogwarts was founded around 990 A.D. by two wizards and two witches: Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Rowena Ravenclaw, and Salazar Slytherin. They each represented an aspect of personality that they wanted to bring out in new students."
