Monty Python's Flying Circus

Oh, You're No Fun Anymore - S1-E7

Question: In this episode, the first man to be changed into a Scotsman is named Harold Potter. Is this an inspiration for the name of Harry Potter?

Chosen answer: No, it's just coincidence. J K Rowling took the surname from Ian Potter, a childhood friend, and she simply picked a first name that she liked.
