Albus Severus Potter is the youngest son of Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley. He appears in the epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and again as a main character in the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
In fandom, Albus is often referred to by both his first and middle names even though his is only ever called "Albus" or "Al" in canon. This is usually done to distinguish him from his namesake, Albus Dumbledore, and to create clever acronyms.
Due to the HP fandom’s mixed feelings about Dumbledore and Snape, Harry's “two bravest men I knew” for whom Albus Severus is named, a popular meme on Tumblr involves giving Albus a different name – sometimes serious, sometimes ridiculous – that the fan thinks would be more fitting.
“Remus Dobby Potter, you were named after the two people who actually gave a shit about my well being. One of them was a house elf and I’d much rather see you become that than a fucking Slytherin. Don’t come back unless you’re wearing red and gold you little shit.”
“harry james potter,” harry said, “you were named after the bravest man i ever knew. it was me. i’m awesome.”
Remus Arthur Potter, you were named after two men who looked out for my safety and cared about my well-being out of altruism and decency rather than because I was a tool for them to use or because I was someone’s son.
