Default Answered: Griffin, Griffindor?

I was wondering, in the Harry Potter series, there is a house called Griffindor. As in the Griffin webkinz and the Griffindor house, I was wondering if GANZ was using the name? Hopefully not, just wondering!

From Wikipedia-

Quote:
The griffin (griffon or gryphon (see below)) is a legendary creature with the body of a lion and the head and often wings of an eagle. As the lion was traditionally considered the king of the beasts and the eagle was the king of the birds, the griffin was thought to be an especially powerful and majestic creature. Griffins are normally known for guarding treasure.[1] In antiquity it was a symbol of divine power and a guardian of the divine.[2]

A griffin is a mythological creature that existed long before the harry potter series.

I immediately thought of the Potter series when I first saw the Griffin and so named mine Jorowling. (after the author) I'm glad you brought this up though, lets clear the air!

Default Re: Griffin, Griffindor?

Hello, That is a great question
I highly doubt that there is a relation at all
1) gryffindor is a copyrighted name, thus there is a slim chance that GANZ could use it
2) there is already a wizards themed room
Great job though
PS IF ANYONE HAS ANY ?'S PM ME AND I CAN HELP
