Omar Shaw was a Ravenclaw student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1990s. He was fond of Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes, and, while at school during the 1996-1997 school year, he traded Stink Pellets, Fanged Frisbees, and Ever-Bashing Boomerangs he had purchased at the store for various objects (Gobstones, Chocolate Frog Cards, chess pieces, and Butterbeer). He could usually be seen spending time in the Paved Courtyard.
The name "Omar" means "eloquent speaker" in Hebrew. And "long-lived" in Arabic.
