A Potterhead is a Harry Potter fan.
Potterhead is a widely used term that has been recognized in media outside of fandom due to the popularity of the HP franchise. In Brazil for many years, HP fans called themselves potteriano, but the term fell into disuse in favor of the international title as a means of uniting Brazilian fannishs with the rest of the world.
