He is Hufflepuff. This is my prove. He is one of two boys that we don't know which house they belongs but because there is 2 empty seats in hufflepuff, we'll think that they are in hufflepuff. Zaki alwi 14:49, March 7, 2012 (UTC)


Source of him being in Hufflepuff? Where is it stated that there are 5 male and 5 female students in each house? It doesn't have to be that way. Also, J.K. Rowling has said, that she imagined there would be considerably more than 40 students in each year at Hogwarts. Can he please be put as 'unknown house'? 08:01, June 1, 2012 (UTC)

Yes check Done - Nick O'Demus 08:17, June 1, 2012 (UTC)

In my opinion Oliver is a Ravenclaw. I think this because looking at the original list, we can note that his original surname was Quirrel and we know Quirrel (the teacher) was a Ravenclaw...

There really isn't any conclusive information for us to say he was in Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff. The article explains why, on the "Behind the scenes" section. Also, just because the characters share(d) a name at some point in Rowling's planning, it doesn't mean the two characters are at all alike (case in point, Hermione's middle name was "Jane", until Rowling decided to give Umbridge that middle name -- and I can hardly think of two more unlike characters). --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 14:58, December 20, 2014 (UTC)
I know very well there are not proofs to enstablish he is in Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw; I wrote the informations in the "Behind Scenes" section, because earlier people thought he was certainly an Hufflepuff. However I think it is likely, (though unconfirmed and unconfirmable) that he is in Ravenclaw. The surname is certainly more significant than the middle name and the fact he was originally a Ravenclaw makes me think he was one of the two students who stayed in Ravenclaw. I just wanted to write on the "Behind Scenes" that it is likely he stayed in Ravenclaw, like in the "Behind scenes" of Sally Smith's page. GianG (talk) 11:22, December 21, 2014 (UTC)

22 January?

Where is the source for his birthday being 22 January? I find it odd that there would even be one considering how minor the character is! -- Kates39 (talk) 21:42, January 15, 2017 (UTC)

It seems like that was a fanon edit that slipped under the radar. Happens sometimes. All we can say at this point is that he would've been born sometime between September 1, 1979 to August 31 1980, what with him being in Harry's year. Starstuff (Owl me!) 01:01, January 17, 2017 (UTC)
