Boggart


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.





For boggarts from the Harry Potter novels, see boggart (Harry Potter).
In Celtic mythology, a boggart (or bogan, bogle or boggle) is a household spirit, sometimes mischievous, sometimes helpful. In Northern England, at least, there was the belief that the boggart should never be named, as when the boggart was given a name, it would not be reasoned with or persuaded and become uncontrollable and destructive.
Blackley in Manchester, England has a large municipal park called 'Boggart Hole Clough.' Clough is a northern dialect word for a steep sided, wooded valley; a large part of Boggart Hole Clough is made up of these valleys and are said to be haunted by Boggarts.
On Puck, a moon of Uranus, there is a crater named "Bogle," in deference to the system of nomenclature on this satellite, whose features are all named after various mischievous spirits.
