Al is Harry and Ginny's middle child, named in honor of both Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape. In the Epilogue, Al is nervously heading off to his first year at Hogwarts. In many ways, he seems like a miniature Harry, or like the Harry we first met in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Al's anxiousness about Sorting also gives us an opportunity to see how much Harry has grown – he assures Al that he'll be proud of him whether he ends up in Gryffindor or Slytherin, or in any other house that fits him best.
