Harry Potter Etymology | Rowena Ravenclaw
ROWENA: “Rowena” is Old English for “red hair,” which ties in with Jo’s fascination for those with red hair. It means “rugged” in Gaelic. In Welsh poetry, Rowena is named “mother of the nation,” which could link in to her being a founder of Hogwarts. She also is another character whose name surfaces in the great epic Ivanhoe.
RAVENCLAW: Ravens are known to be smart birds. Makes sense that Ravenclaws are known as wise, quick learners.
