i think neville is awesome

Agreed Dumblydoor 22:27, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Not only awesome, but really handsome ;) 19:42, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

"Relationships" sectionEdit

In the mention that Neville remained in contact with Harry and Ginny, is "... his wife" necessary? I think it's a given that they're married, and it just seems repetitive. - Cubs Fan2007 22:31, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Ginny's boyfriend?Edit

Neville was recently categorized as one of Ginny's boyfriends, but he never was one. They attended the Yule Ball together, yes, but: (1) after Hermione turned him down because she was attending with Krum, (2) partly because Ginny couldn't have gone to the ball otherwise as she was too young (recall her disappointment to learn that she might have been able to go with Harry had she not already accepted Neville), and (3) Ginny met Michael Corner, who she subsequently begins to date, at the ball. There is no indication that there was a romance between Neville and Ginny; they went as friends, much as Harry and Luna went to Slughorn's Christmas party together as friends. 19:16, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

Good point, I'll uncategorize it. --Freakatone 19:20, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

Potions Edit

I'm thinking of adding some info to Neville's section in the Greasy Git project page working draft, but I can't remember if it's actually in the book. When he sat his OWL in OOTP, was it ever mentioned that he was more at ease without Snape hanging around, or was that only Harry? --Cubs Fan2007 14:58, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Long time for an answer, but I found this, if it can help : "Neville, who was sitting very near Harry, also looked happier than Harry had ever seen him during a Potions class" in OotP, chapter 31, O.W.L.S. Don Silk (talk) 13:35, December 7, 2015 (UTC)

Happy BirthdayEdit

Happy Birthday Neville Longbottom!!!--HallieryElizabeth 14:51, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Neville married who? Edit

Where does the book said that Neville Married? --Lupin & Kingsley 01:28, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

It's not in the book. It was provided by JKR during a DH book tour. --Cubs Fan2007 (Talk) 02:51, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
actually jk rolling claimed that though not in the book he marries hannah abbott 13:12, August 5, 2012 (UTC)
-yeah but in the film neville claims to love luna? :S - unknown user
Neville's actor said, in his opinion, Neville and Luna later broke up. 15:03, August 5, 2012 (UTC)
In one of my fan fictions I said that Neville married Luna, as in the Deathley Hallows Part Two he says: "I figure I better tell Luna how I feel about her, since we'll both be dead by dawn!" Seeing how much he wants Luna to know, I say he most likely marries her. And as for kids, in my fan fic I just made up that they had 4 kids. Someone email Jo Rowling though! But why would he email Hannah Abbott? He never has ANY connection with her and if they were going to get married then Hannah would have been a bit more important in the books. The only time she's ever mentioned is at the Sorting Cerimonie (how do you spell cerymonie? Brain fart.)

Hair Color Edit

Didn't JK Rowling say Neville had blonde hair, not light brown? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by [[User:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]] ([[User talk:{{{1}}}|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/{{{1}}}|contribs]]).

If you think so, you can edit that info. --ÈnŔîčöHallows(Send me an Owl) 04:17, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
Where in the books is this mentioned? A source should be listed for something like that. Flicky1991 13:01, May 7, 2012 (UTC)
JK Rowling said it herself during one of her interviews: "Now, to me, Neville's short and plump and blond..." (click to see the complete interview). --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 13:09, May 7, 2012 (UTC)

Animagus - Fish? Edit

Is that true or is it vandalism? Toon Ganondorf (t c) 09:09, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

I can't remember in the books nor in the movies discussing Neville is an Animagi or he has the ability to transform himself as a fish. So, it's possibly strong that the information in the infobox is false and put only by someone else just to perform vandalism. --ÈnŔîčö Ravenclawcrest(Send me an Owl!) 18:42, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
He most definatelly does not transform into a fish. I have removed it. Solar Dragon 18:50, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Eye Color Edit

Is there any source for Neville having hazel eyes? --SilverDrama 08:11, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

I believe this information was based on Matthew Lewis's physical appearance. Character descriptions shouldn't be based on the physical appearance of an actor who plays them, because more than one person can portray the same character, and these people will sometimes look quite different from one another (e.g., Jennifer Smith and Jessie Cave as Lavender Brown). Starstuff (Owl me!) 14:08, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

On Eye color it now stands "Green", Is there any source of that? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 21:45, 23 July 2009.



He is married to Hannah.--Rodolphus 17:03, January 8, 2010 (UTC)

a) this is for EYE COLOR b) duh ginny loves harry and c) neville MARRIES hannah, this is to katarina —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Dementors Edit

How would he do against dementors? Would he be forced to relive his parents' torture as Harry was forced to relive their deaths? 03:46, September 25, 2010 (UTC)

As far as we know he did not see his parents' torture, but he definitely had some bad memories. --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 04:05, September 25, 2010 (UTC)
Plus, you would think if Neville had been there when his parents were attacked that threatening to hurt Neville would have been far better leverage for information then just using the cruciatus curse on the parents. As evil as Bellatrix is, I doubt she would have had a problem hurting a child. --BachLynnGryffindorcrest(Accio!) 13:58, September 25, 2010 (UTC)

Kids Edit

Did Neville and Hannah have any kids? 15:39, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

As far as we know, no. JKR hasn't mentioned anything. --Cubs Fan (Talk to me)

It is a very popular assumption that Neville and Hannah had two kids named Alice and Frank. Unfortunately, it's not cannon so we don't really know. DeathlyHallowsSonya (talk) 03:43, September 8, 2015 (UTC)

Hannah Abbott? Edit

After reading on here that Neville married Hannah Abbott I searched through the books to find proof of that, but found nothing suggesting that Neville was even married. I just wanted to know where the creators of this page found evidence of a marriage between Neville and Hannah. 19:28, December 11, 2010 (UTC) Andrea Greenberg

This comes from an interview with JKR at Carnegie Hall following the release of Deathly Hallows. [1] Thanks, --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 19:42, December 11, 2010 (UTC)
It says on JKR's website that Neville marries Hannah look up if you don't believe me! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

In one of my fan fictions I said that Neville married Luna, as in the Deathley Hallows Part Two he says: "I figure I better tell Luna how I feel about her, since we'll both be dead by dawn!" Seeing how much he wants Luna to know, I say he most likely marries her. And as for kids, in my fan fic I just made up that they had 4 kids. Someone email Jo Rowling though! But why would he email Hannah Abbott? He never has ANY connection with her and if they were going to get married then Hannah would have been a bit more important in the books. The only time she's ever mentioned is at the Sorting Cerimonie (how do you spell cerymonie? Brain fart.)

Picture Edit

I didn't like this picture. There is blood and his face doesn't look good. I think we must put another picture emphasizing his physical appearance and personality.

This is the most rescent and I think it fits the book description (the one in book 7) well. Aside from the dark hair of course.--Rodolphus 17:42, March 13, 2011 (UTC)

I know but isn't there a picture that shows his body and his face better detailed?

Middle Name?Edit

Does anyone know what Neville's middle name was? Is it Frank or is that just fan-fiction? TheMeaningOfLife 10:03, March 20, 2011 (UTC)

  • -- It's isn't mentioned in the books and JKR has yet to issue any statement. Frank/Franklin is purely a result of Fanon, but it is logical, considering most of the HP characters have a relative's name as their middle. ( 3:05, December 04, 2011 )

Neville using expelliarmus Edit

Did anyone notice on the OOTP when Neville uses expeliarmus on the manakin they are practicing on before he can actually do it?

yeah but the patil twins were helping him when he did it, remember? also stop talking about the movies, they left out peeves after all, am i right? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Snape Edit

One could say that Snape didn't merely dislike or despise Neville; this seemed even an attentive dislike, one he fought to keep going. Granted he wasn't the best student--almost exactly the opposite. But he really had it in for him at times. My article question : I speculate that this dislike was intensified by how Neville could have been the prophecy child, and that if V-Mort had chosen to kill him, Lily might have survived. Problem is, I know of no way to place that in the article, since no statement of his or anyone's directly backs that up. Gojirob 15:02, June 9, 2011 (UTC)

Matthew Lewis is about 22 years old, but in the Harry Potter movies he is in the same age as Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley... How does that work?

Most of the actors and actresses in the films (Matt, Emma, Dan, Rupert, Bonnie, Evanna, etc.) are older than their characters. They might have started out the same age at the beginning, but it took 10 years to film, not 7, so of course they're older than their characters.

Hatstall Edit

Could someone add the stuff from pottermore?

Favorite quote Edit

shouldn't we add a quote article? because I really love it when Neville said " Oh my God! I've killed Harry Potterplus,nthis is for everyone's article. #LOL ~~SandyOwl89~~

Having a list of character quotes isn't in the principles of fair use. The quotes currently in the article are (in theory, anyway) for example purposes, provide insight into the article's subject that a simple paraphrased description cannot, and are supported by a substantial quantity of original text. Having just a list of quotes, like having a gallery of images with no article text as commentary, is stretching into outright copyright violation. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 20:32, May 4, 2015 (UTC)

Not an Auror Edit

In the article, and in the references linked to it, it is mentionned that Neville became an Auror after the 2nd War, this being supported by the transcript of a discussion with J.K. Rowling. ( )

However, after reading this element, I'm not quite sure he ever was, and I'm quite sure there's been a misuderstanding of it. There's only one element speaking of Neville and Aurors, here's what she said :

"[...] JKR : I love Neville. I love NEville so much. Always loved Neville. And I always had big plans for Neville, you know? And he really was The Boy It Could've Been, because as you know, as I made clear, he was born hours before Harry, he was born on the 30th of July, Voldemort singled him out as the other possibility. But the great thing about Neville's story for me, the over-arching story about Neville, is that he proves himself to be a boy who could've done it too. Yeah, Harry had the scar and arguably, Harry had an edge more talent because Harry-- he has an extraordinary instinct for the right thing to do. He's just got the right instinct, and that's what would make him, in due course, a phenomenal Auror. But Neville was, I think, amazing in the final battle, and proved himself a hundred times over worthy of being a Griffyndor, his parents' son, despite the very difficultchildhood he had in the hands of his very pushy grandmother, and I know, she loves him and he loves her, but she's not an easy person to be raised by. [...]"

From what I read, it is not said that Neville became an Auror, only that in comparison with him, Harry had more instinct, which made Harry an Auror.

Please, let me know if I missed anything, and feel free to discuss the matter!
