"What? But Levski’s got the Quaffle!"
-- Harry Potter looking through Omnioculars at the 1994 Quidditch World Cup (GF8)



Levski means "like a lion" in archaic Bulgarian (Baby Namespedia). The currency of Bulgaria is the lev and a famous Bulgarian hero is Vasil Levski.


A videogame with Famous Wizards cards gives him a first name of "Alexei".
