Everyone has been pronouncing this Harry Potter character’s name wrong for YEARS

And we thought Hermione was hard enough.

Well, this is awkward.

Turns out the trouble with “he who must not be named” is that no one actually knows how to say his name properly. No wonder he was carrying around all that anger and frustration guys, he’s basically been bullied his entire life!

He is clearly having a hard time dealing with all the #feels. Just look at him.

J.K. Rowling recently weighed in on some Harry Potter trivia regarding the correct pronunciation of Voldemort and (drum roll please) it’s a silent “t”. Who even knew?! Well, apparently no one other than Rowling herself.

It makes sense if you think about it as “mort” in French can roughly be translated to mean “dead” or “death” so it’s a charming link really…

Meanwhile Voldy be all like...

TBH while this is very big news, we’re just happy we finally got Hermione right. Let’s all just hug it out shall we?
