“Fear of a name only increases fear of the thing itself.” Hermione Granger wisely points this out as an oddly mature second year. She is teaching one of the most important lessons of the Potter series: the power of language. Rowling shows language as a powerful weapon, one that can be used for good or evil, one that can be morphed to suit the needs of its user.
