Possibly a "Did you mean?" to Hollow?[edit]

I was thinking we should add a "did you mean" to this page that references hollow, because I get the terms mixed up quite a bit. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.208.187.226 (talk) 22:11, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Connection[edit]

Okay, since Harry Potter Book Seven is the only reason for this article's creation, I hope everyone will agree that a brief mention of HPDH would be appropriate (an explanation of the word's presence in the title, not the meaning as we see it). Thanks. Within the Veil 20:51, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

I made a reference to it in my edit, saying that the term's usage in the series has yet to be determined, but if you want more than that, I think it might be considered speculation. Kochdude388 23:59, 26 March 2007 (UTC)
While I don't disagree that this article should mention something about HP7, I don't think it really should be a part of a wikiproject about Harry Potter... Maybe I'm alone in that thought, but I thought I'd mention it. Tuvas 16:06, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

Hallowed Hallow[edit]

That sentence about the various uses (The HH of a HH stored in a HH) is beautiful; Wikipedia at its best. Wit and encyclopedic value all at once. --205.201.141.146 15:48, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

Updated! The HH of a HH is H in a HH. Not quite Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo but getting there... --T-dot ( Talk/contribs ) 15:38, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Footnotes Missing[edit]

Can someone please do whatever is necessary to make the footnotes appear at the end of the article? 172.177.179.250 09:50, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Must have gotten deleted in the mini-edit-war after the release of Deathly Hallows. I restored the references, "See also", and categories to a "clean version" point before the book release. Thanks for the heads-up. --T-dot ( Talk/contribs ) 11:34, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Hallowed ground[edit]

The article currently doesn't mention one term that is still in fairly common usage: "hallowed ground" -- 159.182.1.4 23:26, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Samhain paragraph[edit]

The paragraph beginning with "Samhain predated Christianity" seems out-of-place in this article. It would be more appropriate to the article about Samhain, or the article about Halloween. --Rogermw (talk) 00:25, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Irrelevant etymology?[edit]

If this article is about "hallow", why does it spend so much time discussing a different word, "weihaba, weihs"? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.146.59.91 (talk) 12:02, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

Is "Wih" a synonym for "hallow"?[edit]

I noticed that wih redirects to this page, apparently as a spelling variant of weoh. Is it correctly identified? Jarble (talk) 01:24, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

It isn't described this way in Wiktionary, but I found another dictionary definition that confirms this: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Wih
