The original names of some of your favorite ‘Harry Potter’ characters

Gary. Gary? GARY!? It just feels wrong. But it's true, newly uncovered illustrations by J.K. Rowling herself revealed the author originally named one of her Harry Potter characters Gary. And there's more!

You really don't know what you're going to find on Pottermore on any given day. While it's changed its appearance this year there are still hidden gems popping up now and then.

TheRowlingLibrary.com recently pointed out that Rowling's old illustrations have been popping up in random posts on the official fan site. They say three are entirely new to fans while several others are now available at higher resolutions than they have been in the past. Here are the new ones:

Found on Pottermore's Peeves entry.

This one is from a bit of writing on potions.

And on the History of the Quidditch World Cup page.

But a fan had a question about another illustration, one which featured Neville, Ron, Harry, Hermione, and someone named Gary.
