SPOILERS: Book 7 Title Released

For v2 of this thread Click Here.

You no longer need to write the title in spoiler tags within this thread.



Well, it's out. If you want to find it yourself first, go to HPANA or MuggleNet for hints on how to do it.

Otherwise, here it is:

Thoughts??

Re: Book 7 Title Released

It all fits, given what happened to Harry's parents on the date mentioned in the title (if the title is reffering to what I believe it is).

Re: SPOILERS: Book 7 Title Released

Spoiler: show
Harry's parents died on Haloween (sp), and Hallows I believe is referring to Haloween. Deathly obviously means someone is gonna kick the bucket! I think on Haloween Harry will either meet his end or Voldie will meet his end, one way or another I am sure this has something to do with Haloween.


Ok Not the title in spoilers, just my theory on the what the title means.

Re: SPOILERS: Book 7 Title Released

Spoiler: show
Hallows - ("holy" or "holy night") the Oct. 31 Greater Sabbat, also called November Eve, the Celtic Samhain ("sow-en"); the beginning of the Celtic winter, and of the Celtic year; the beginning of the Witches' Year, when the Veil Between the Worlds grows thin and the spirits of the dead may return to Earth; the Descent of the Goddess to the Underworld; the final Harvest festival

Hallow - consecrate: render holy by means of religious rites

To be hallowed means to be holy - worthy of religious veneration; "the sacred name of Jesus"; "Jerusalem's hallowed soil".


Interesting - this is going to be fun!

Righto. If we're picking it apart and discussing what it means, should we keep that in spoiler tags too?

Ooh, good catch. Hadn't thought of that.

Well, the dictionary doesn't list hallows as a noun. Here's what it does have for hallow:

hallow -verb (used with object)
1. to make holy; sanctify; consecrate.
2. to honor as holy; consider sacred; venerate: to hallow a battlefield.

Any ideas on what hallows might be?

Just for the moment, yes please I'd hate to think someone would click on this by accident or something and see it splashed all over the first page. Let's just give it a couple of hours and pages, then we'll let it relax a bit

Oooooohhh....spooky and interesting, though it seems to have a ring of finality, eh? Which is fitting, I guess. I NEVER can even venture to guess the titles of upcoming books, so I usually don't try, but I really didn't expect "Deathly Hallows". Wow. Dark. Delicious. *trembles in anticipation*

"Veil between the worlds shall thin"...

Hmm...

Sirius's spirit/ghost/whatever coming back?

Other than that it's a bit of a let down I think - Something big happens on most Halloweens anyway

Blatantly stealing from SageThyme's post from the JKR Official site thread because I'm just to excited to wait - sorry SageThyme.

hallow- hallo

This is the one I believe holds the most promise:

hallo 1. (used to call or answer someone, or to incite dogs in hunting.) 2. the cry "hallo!" 3. a shout of exultation 4. to call with a loud voice; shout; cry; as after hunting dogs 5. to incite or chase (something) with shouts and cries of "hallo!" 6. to cry "hallo" to (someone) 7. to shout (something)

I think it will have something to do with "deathly cries or shouts", as those from beyond the Veil.
That makes a lot of sense to me.

I like the idea of calls beyond the veil - also like the idea of it relating to information we'll get about Halloween 1981

Re: SPOILERS: Book 7 Title Released

Spoiler: show
I must say the whole celtic connection to "hallows" is very interesting. If you take Hallow to mean "hello" then you've got deathly calls of greeting...spooky... and since Hallows is found in Hallow's Eve, ie Halloween, the night when the dead walk the earth "hallows" is another word for dead people walking...Inferi...and considering the last book the Inferi are pretty deadly. But it could also mean Harry could be getting advise from people who are dead but still powerful, like Sirius, Dumbledore, and not least, his mum and dad....


OH I JUST CAN'T WAIT!!!

Re: SPOILERS: Book 7 Title Released

Spoiler: show
Certainly an interesting title! It could have many implications for the next book, although the consensus is that it has to do with Halloween. Have to admit though that the first thing I thought upon reading 'Deathly Hallows' is that it's not really as powerful a title as the other books in the series. It's kind of... whispery? I don't know, maybe it was designed that way!


So basically:

Could Hallows refer to a place? Does anyone else think that this is possible?
