Harry Potter Spell Quiz

Updated on May 16, 2014

Potter Mania

Harry Potter is a great fantasy book which was originally meant for children.I was so crazy with the characters of Harry, Ron and Hermione and their adventures in the book that I even made an English play out of it in school. The book was so interesting that my mother used to read it and quiz us on it. The most common knowledge we tested were the different spells used in the book. So I thought of coming up with a quiz for the spells. This quiz is neither too easy nor too tough. If you have enjoyed the book, you will be able to remember most of it. Let me know how you score.

Lesser Known Facts

Origin of Spells

From Latin :

Aparecium is derived from appareo, meaning to become visible or to appear.

Confringo causes something to explode in flames. It means to break in pieces, to bring to naught

Densuageo is derived from two Latin words: dens, which means tooth, and augeo, which means to enlarge. The spell causes the victims teeth to grow quickly.

Protego Horribilis comes from protego, meaning to protect, and horribilis, meaning horrible.

From African Dialect:

The spell Alohomora in the West African dialect means friendly to thieves

From English:

Scourgify, which is a spell used to get something clean, is a modified version of the word scour.

From Greek:

The spell Episkey is derived from the Greek episkeu, which means repair, restoration.

From Italian:

The spell Tarantallegra makes a victim legs dance uncontrollably. It is a combination of the words allegra, which means joyful, and tarantella, which is a Southern Italian folk dance with rapid movements.

Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike.

Opposite of what?

You might know the spells. But do you know how to take them off? What are you waiting for? See if you can do it.

If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.
