J.K. Rowling Confirms Harry Potter Fan Theory

#HarryPotter author J.K. Rowling was done with fans mispronouncing the first name of her character Hermione Granger, but how to solve the problem?

J.K. Rowling cleverly decided to make the pronunciation crystal clear in the fourth book series, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, which was first published in 2000.

In Chapter 23, “The Yule Ball”, Hermione teaches Bulgarian Quidditch star Viktor Krum the correct way to articulate her first name (Her-My-Oh-Nee). By doing so, the fans would get it right too!

J.K. Rowling confirmed a fan theory on Twitter Tuesday, after a user suggested that the scene was included solely “to school all of us who were saying HER-MY-OWN like Viktor Krum.”
