Book 7 Title

Tags: ,
It's official. We have a title.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

I don't know how I feel about it. It has to sink in for a bit. Anyone else have an opinion yet? I want to know the other two titles she's been debating.
Feeling: contemplative

Hmmmm..... I'm still mulling it over. I like that it's a bit of a contradiction, and I'm wondering if 'hallows' may turn out to be actual things - a kind of spirit or something, and if that's the case, I think I like it a lot.

Most of her titles have been fairly literal. There was a specific stone, chamber, prisoner, goblet, order, and prince. So is this specific as well? Is it a place? A thing? Spirits as you suggest? Or is it more of a metaphorical title with various meanings? I would expect the former just because it would be weird to have the last book's title be so different than the rest. But there are interesting possibilities if it is the latter. I could see something about how both sides' veneration of their leader and expectation of everything coming down to the final Harry vs. Voldie death match could cause unnecessary deaths.

Oh dear...

I must use my time at work to ponder this =D

Will let you know what I think.

There are many different meanings for the word: 'Hallows'.

I think 'Deathly' is pretty self-sufficiant!

Quick thought: Anything to do with Sirius, perhaps? Cause for GOF and OotP Harry was really into him, then he died, and then in HBP Harry barely mentioned him. I wonder if this is JKR's way...

It is hard to go wrong with deathly. Hallow is the weird one. I really have no idea what it could mean. I still lean toward all the titles so far referencing specific, physical things so I expect this one to be the same, but I could be wrong.

Hm. I can't make up my mind...

I suspect there will be a lot of that going 'round.

There is definitely a lot of that going around. I'm exited though, bouncing off the walls in fact.

I was all hyped about the title saw it and sort of went 'Oh, well. Right then.'

I am not really liking it at this point, but it may grow on me.

I'm thinking it might have something to do with Godric's Hollow...

Things usually take time to grow on me.

I doubt it'll have anything to do with Godric's Hollow. I'm fully expecting the trip to GH, but I doubt it will be directly connected to the mysterious Deathly Hallows.
