McLaggan or McClaggan is a Scottish alternative spelling of the Irish McLaggen.


There has been a non-canon suggestion that this lad might be related to Cormac McLaggen - Gryffindor student and Slug Club member who unsuccessfully competes to become Gryffindor Keeper and takes an unreturned liking for Hermione Granger (HBP).

The first name of McClaggan (CG) is not mentioned and the surnames are spelled slightly differently.
