1.Hermione’s middle name is supposed to be Jane, in memory of Caroline’s grandmother. However, the clerk at the hospital taking the necessary information for the forms misspells the name. Jean is a perfectly decent name, so it isn’t worth the fuss and trouble to have it corrected.

2Hermione loves books from an early age. Unfortunately, she doesn’t read them so much as enjoy looking at the pictures or studying the words. She hears her parents discussing the fact that she’s not reading yet when she’s five, and, by the time she turns seven, they’re more concerned. She wants to read, because books and words fascinate her, but there’s something in her brain that just won’t let her.

3.She’s only kissed two boys and had one try to steal a kiss. Her first kiss was with Viktor and it was a sweet kiss after the Yule Ball. Her second was also with Viktor, though it was more intense, right before he asked her to visit him that summer. McLaggen tried to steal a kiss during Slughorn’s Christmas party, but she threatened to render a part of his anatomy useless, so he stopped his attempts. Her third kiss is with Ron during the heat of battle. She doesn’t remember moving towards him or pressing her lips against his. Her lips tingle after, and Harry is blushing, so she knows they kissed, but it’s a blur of emotion that she still can’t figure out yet.
