Ginny Weasley is a character in the Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling.


Ginevra Molly "Ginny" Potter (née Weasley), born on 11 August 1981, was a pure-blood witch, the youngest of Arthur and Molly Weasley's seven children, and the first female to be born into the Weasley line for several generations. She attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from 1992 to 1999 and was sorted into Gryffindor house. During her first year, she came under the influence of the memory of Tom Riddle's sixteen-year-old self, preserved in a diary, and was forced to re-open the Chamber of Secrets, endangering the lives of many students, including herself.

Harry Potter

Main article: Hinny

Harry and Ginny meet as kids in the summer of 1991, when Harry boards the Hogwarts Express for the first time. Ginny harbours a crush on a bemused Harry, but eventually stops being shy around him and starts dating other people, later revealed to be on the advice of Hermione. Harry falls in love with Ginny when he's 16 and spends months being jealous while she dates one of his friends, Dean Thomas. He and Ginny get together, but he breaks things off prior to his quest to defeat Voldemort. After the war, Ginny and Harry get married very young and start a family.

Dean Thomas

Dean and Ginny start dating at the end of her fourth year, much to the chagrin of her nosy brothers, Fred, George and Ron. Ron especially finds it hard to deal with, as Dean is a mate of his and in his year. Dean and Ginny seem to have fun together, until Ginny starts being annoyed with him and they get into fights regularly. Ginny breaks up with Dean, who's very sad about it for a while.

Michael Corner

A Ravenclaw one year above Ginny, whom she's with for the better part of her fourth year. They're in Dumbledore's Army together, but Ginny breaks up with him when he badmouths Harry at some point.



James Sirius Potter

James Sirius Potter (born between 1 September 2003 and 31 August 2004) was the eldest child of Harry and Ginny Potter (née Weasley). His godparents, as well as uncle and aunt, are Ron and Hermione Weasley. He has two younger siblings: Albus and Lily. James was named after his paternal grandfather, James Potter, and his father's godfather, Sirius Black.

James is much like his Uncle, Ron Weasley, for his poor timing and knack for interfering with other people's love lives. He also seems to have inherited his sense of humour and love for mischief from his two uncles, Fred and George Weasley, and having a fondness for teasing his siblings and making mischief. He is also very much like his two namesakes, James Potter and Sirius Black, in his mischievous and trouble-making nature.


Albus Potter

Albus Severus "Al" Potter (born between 1 September 2005 and 31 August 2006) was a half-blood wizard and the second son of Harry and Ginny Potter (née Weasley). Albus was the middle of three children, born at least a year after his older brother James, and two years before his younger sister Lily. He was named in memory of Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape.

Albus is a quiet, kind and thoughtful young boy, unlike his loud older brother. He seems to have inherited some of his father's personality, including his irrational and childish fear of being sorted into Slytherin house. It seems that Albus has the closest relationship with his father out of his siblings. He seems to have an interest in his father's fame and past, as it seems that he inherited the paternal line of curiosity.


Lilly Luna Potter

Lily Luna Potter (born between 1 September 2007 and 31 August 2008) was the youngest child of Harry and Ginny Potter (née Weasley). She had two older brothers; James Sirius and Albus Severus. She was named for her paternal grandmother, and her parents' good friend Luna Lovegood.

Lily seems to have a personality similar to her mother. She is very jealous of her two older brothers when they are leaving for Hogwarts, quite similar to the eagerness and envy Ginny displayed when the last of her brothers went away to school in 1991. She seems to enjoy talking to her family. She and her cousin Hugo, had an "animated discussion" about what house they would be in, suggesting they are really close cousins.


  • Ginny is portrayed by British actress Bonnie Wright in the film adaptations.
  • The Ships of Harry/Ginny and Ronald/Hermione is referred to as One Big Happy Weasley Family (OBHWF).
