You can also name your bundle of joy after your favorite Hogwarts house with a name that represents these qualities.

What Parents Need To Know

Hufflepuff was second only to Gryffindor in the number of students who stayed back to defend Hogwarts from the death eaters, showing their fierce loyalty.

The house is often underrated and seen as boring, but has housed many influential witches and wizards, like Nymphadora Tonks and Cedric Diggory.

The warm and cozy Hufflepuff common room is close to the kitchen and Hufflepuffs share a good rapport with the kitchen elves. This demonstrates their kind and compassionate nature.

What To Discuss With Kids

Hufflepuff is rooted in the value of inclusivity. The house welcomes anyone willing to try to hone their skills.

Hufflepuffs make excellent, loyal friends who are always delighted to share what they have. They stand by their friends and never turn their back just to fit in with the crowd.

Hufflepuffs make outstanding secret keepers but are always honest when the situation demands it.

The students of this house aren't boastful or fierce competitors. They are more interested in the fun and togetherness of events.
