I'm currently making a mind map of the Harry Potter universe, but when I got to filling in the houses of Hogwarts, I realised that I barely know any names.

What are the names of everyone from Harry's year?

    Are you looking for everyone ever, or just Harry's year?

    List-based questions are typically considered too broad for this site. Also, kinda boring.

  • @Valorum yes, but restricted lists are generally okay. Especially when limited to just Harry's year, this list won't be very long.

  • @SQB - There's no indication that the OP wants to restrict it. They're simply asking for a list of every character in HP that has a known house. That runs into hundreds of characters.

  • That's why I asked the OP to clarify. Also, an answer to this question could be to point the OP in the right direction, as I have tried to do by directing them to Pottermore.

If it's just Harry's year you want, JKR had a list of forty students ready when she started writing the books, called "The Original Forty".
Also see this answer that tells you what happened to those original forty.

Wizarding World also has lists of characters, organised by house. For instance, the Ravenclaws. If you set out and explore Wizarding World, I think most of your question will be answered there.
