It this spell called Obliviate Recanto? for some reason its stated in the List_of_spells as that name. is the incantation ever mentioned? The Unbeholden 18:01, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

I think you're right; the incantation was never mentioned. J.K. Rowling only said that it was a different charm from Obliviate. Oread 18:54, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

A quick chat to a friend that understands latin ( for reading old bibles ) shows that the phrase Reproba Memoria would be a good start point for the spell. It has a basic meaning of "false memory" and actually sounds out quite well.

If one wanted to be cute we could use Velieris Memoria which means "hide memory", maybe Sluggies memory "fix" for the Horcrux.

Where is this spell referred to as a "False Memory Charm?" If the actual name remains unknown, then the title of the article shouldn't be capitalized, and we should place a conjecture tag on it. Starstuff (Owl me!) 06:40, August 7, 2011 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure it's conjecture. The source interview only says "memory charm" (lowercase), which Rowling specifies is a different charm from Obliviate. I'll go ahead with the rename and tag. - Nick O'Demus 09:07, August 7, 2011 (UTC)

Adding informations about Hermione Granger

I have read a script of the film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, and in other words it is written: Hermione Granger used the "False memory charm" on her parents and altered their memory to: 1) Their names were change to Wendell and Monica Wilkins ; 2) It were created a wish to move to Sydney, Australia; 3) In Sydney they opened a sweet shop (an irony, since they were dentists in England before have the memory altered), but they floss daily; 4) They have two dogs and no children. If this is truth (canonical origin), should this be added to this text? Andre G. Dias (talk) 23:20, April 4, 2014 (Brazil)
