In the Chamber of Secrezs game, Flitwick refers to the Hover charm as levitatioon spell. Does this indicate that Levioso and Wingardium are attually the same spell, and the incantation was changed over the centuries?--Rodolphus 18:13, May 25, 2011 (UTC)
Well, first off, the HP website (where the cast-a-spell kit and hence this spell comes from) is affiliated with the films, a higher source of canon than the games (and hence Cast-a-spell trumps the game). Therefore, no, we couldn't assume they are the same spell. Secondly, there's no canonical info that suggests incantations can be changed.
You could, however, suggest your theory in BTS - Green Zubat 22:06, August 8, 2011 (UTC).
What does it do?

In the talk page for the Hover Charm, there is a discussion going on that the Hover Charm and Wingardium Leviosa are two separate spells. Is it possible that Levioso is the Hover Charm? After all, both spells make the target hover, and as far as I'm aware both were invented by J. K. Rowling. Hunnie Bunn (talk) 19:37, July 17, 2012 (UTC)
