Amanda was a witch who attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She was sorted in Ravenclaw in 1991 with Professor Filius Flitwick, the Charms Master, as her Head of House. During her first flying lesson, she was personally greeted by her flying teacher, Madam Rolanda Hooch, for unknown reasons.

It is unknown what happened to her during Harry's other years at Hogwarts or when the Battle of Hogwarts occurred.

Behind the scenes

Etymology

Amanda is a feminine form of Amandus. However, it was not used during the Middle Ages. In the 17th century it was recreated by authors and poets who based it directly on Latin amanda "lovable, worthy of love". Notably, it was used by the playwright Colley Cibber for a character in his play 'Love's Last Shift' (1696). It came into regular use during the 19th century.[2]
