Meaningful Connection??

Okay, maybe I'm slow and everyone else has noticed this already: I'm reading the Chronicles of Narnia to my kids. We started The Magician's Nephew last night, (reading it in its original place in the series, not in the starting position where the present small minded, linear thinkers at Scholastic have placed it.) Anyway, we read the first place where main character Digory is introduced and my son exclaims, "Oh! Digory! Just like Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter!"

Duh! I'd completely missed that. Is it just coincidence, do you think? Or is JK Rowling hinting at some deeper meaning?

My guess would be coincedence. Other than name I can't think of much that links them. Well they both try to do what is right I suppose but that could be said of numerous other characters.

no idea. But we remember - and use - names for all kinds of reasons. I for example don't like the name Pauline (no offence) because of a childhood event, yet Paula and even Paulina is quite a different matter. And the idea that we all need a Paul /Paula(Paulina) in our lives. It's becoming quite an obsession actually!
