Sue Li was a half-blood witch who began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1991. She was in the same year as Harry Potter and was sorted into Ravenclaw house.[2]


Lǐ, written 李, is one of the most common surnames in Chinese, and borrowings of it are common family names in Japan and Korea as well. It dates back to the Tang Dynasty, being the surname of the Tang rulers. In Turkish the name means "water". As for "Sue", from Chinese 素 "plain", or else 肃 or 肅 which both mean "respectful". Sue could have been an English name her parents picked for her, instead; it means "graceful lily" in Hebrew.
