The Harry Potter series has gripped the imaginations of multiple generations, and thanks to the internet, fan theories are dime a dozen.
From wild ones involving Snape being Harry's father to the is-he-isnt-he debate over certain character's sexuality, there are plenty to go around.
Luckily, author JK Rowling has a penchant for sharing fun HP facts via Twitter, and answered one particular theory.
Hermione is now a very well known name thanks to the book and film series, but pre-Potter, it was rather unusual.
So, when the books first came out ahead of the movies, there were plenty of people mispronouncing the Shakespearian moniker.
That is, until the fourth tome – The Goblet of Fire, in which JK. Rowling placed a paragraph where Hermione explains how to say her name to love interest Viktor Krum.
Theory correct. https://t.co/Q46h56ljuU

A Twitter fan hypothesised that Roling had intentionally placed this scene in the novel; because she was sick of so many people mispronouncing the core character's name.
And guess what folks, that theory was correct – as confirmed by JK Rowling herself.
Perhaps a similar paragraph for Xenophilius Lovegood wouldn't have gone astray.
