With the recent Harry Potter resurgence, many of my coworkers have been taking various online quizzes to determine which Hogwarts house in which they belong. Everyone is familiar with the four houses of Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin.  What you might not know is that there were originally supposed to be many more houses, but they were deleted in later drafts.

Here are a few Hogwarts house names that didn’t make the cut:

Wifflebat

Snorkelspork

Burgerbarn

Platypus

Corduroy

Cankersore

Sparklespank

Chumbawumb

Meganfox

Baltimore

Scratchensniff

Goitersquirt

Applejack

Gynoblast

Pumpkindump

Steve

Romperstomp

Ferretfart

Cumberbatch

Always remember that reading is fundamental.
