'Angelina Johnson of Gryffindor - what an excellent Chaser that girl is, and rather attractive too.'
-- Lee Jordan (PS11)
Her birthday is in the week before Halloween (GF16).
She is a skilled Quidditch player, being Chaser for the Gryffindor Quidditch team for at least four years (not including 1994-95), and was made captain in her seventh year.
Angelina is a Latin diminutive of the girl's name Angela, which ultimately derives from the male name Angelus, meaning "messenger" (Greek αγγελος/angelos) (Behind the Name).
Johnson means "son of John". The name John derives from the Hebrew name Yochanan, meaning "God has favoured me (with a son)" (Internet Surname Database).
Angelina Johnson was played by Danielle Tabor in the first three films. She was replaced by Tiana Benjamin for the Goblet of Fire film. She did not appear in any of the last four films.
