Emily was a Hufflepuff student at Hogwarts School during the 1990s. In 1992, she trusted Harry Potter on his claim that he was not the Heir of Slytherin, but blamed him for attacking Mrs Norris.[1]


The name "Emily" is an English feminine form of Aemilius. In the English-speaking world it was not common until after the German House of Hanover came to the British throne in the 18th century; the princess Amelia Sophia (1711-1786) was commonly known as Emily in English, even though Amelia is an unrelated name. Famous bearers include the British author Emily Brontë (1818-1848), who wrote Wuthering Heights, and the American poet Emily Dickinson (1830-1886).
