< Appendix:Harry Potter

While virtually any fictional object in the Harry Potter series may display magical characteristics due to having been exposed to one or more spells, some of such objects receive specific names, apparently due to their commonness or uniqueness.

Most objects are named after their uses or receive apparently catchy and simple related names. Alternatively, they receive nicknames after their owners or creators.
