Alison Denshaw was a Gryffindor[3] student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1990s. She competed in the school Exploding Snap tournament during the 1996–1997 school year.


The name "Alison" is the Norman French diminutive of Aalis. It has often been construed to mean "truthful". It was common in England and France in the Middle Ages, and was later revived in the 20th century. Variant spellings have substituted "y" for "i", or included an extra "l" in the spelling.
