Harry Potter fans will be familiar with the many names of the series' main antagonist - He Who Must Not Be Named, Tom Marvolo Riddle, the Dark Lord, Voldemort. But did you know that in different parts of the world, he goes by other names?

Think you're a Harry Potter expert? Well, even the most dedicated fans have been left scratching their heads over some of the translations of Lord Voldemort's name from other countries.

In the second book of the series, The Chamber of Secrets, we learn that 'I am Lord Voldemort' is an anagram of the character's birth name, Tom Marvolo Riddle. However, when the book was translated into other languages, this name had to be tweaked.

And some of the translated names are truly outlandish - ranging from Trevor, to Elvis and even Romeo. A recent Instagram post from the official Harry Potter and Wizarding World accounts revealed some of these unique translated names.

For instance, in Icelandic, Tom Riddle shares a first name with Neville Longbottom's pet toad Trevor. His name becomes Trevor Delgome, which rearranges to 'Eg er Voldemort'. In a hilarious twist, the French translation of Voldemort is Tom Elvis Jedusor - an anagram for 'Je suis Voldemort'.

Meanwhile, in Denmark, he has a rather romantic name - Romeo. His full name is Romeo G. Detlev Jr, which spells out Jeg er Voldemort.

In the Greek version, Lord Voldemort is known as Anton Morvol Hert, while Dutch readers know him as Marten Asmodom Vilijn, and to Slovenian fans he's Mark Neelstin.

Unsurprisingly, such hilarious translations had Harry Potter fans rolling on the floor, one of them exclaiming: "Trevor? ? ? why," followed by a crying emoji. Another reader quipped: "O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou, Romeo? - Harry Potter."

A third fan laughed: "Imagine being scared of Trevor... Dumbledore saying 'It was foolish of you to come here, Trevor.' Really scary," tagged with a crying-while-laughing emoji. "Love this. Elvis tops it for me," was another fan's favourite reaction.
