    Remus Lupin was named Moony because of the Full Moon (hes a werewolf)

    Peter Pettigrew was named Wormtail because when he transformed into a Rat, his tail looked like a worm

    Sirius Black was Padfoot because he transformed into a black dog (sirius is also a black dog constellation)

    James Potter (harrys dad) was named Prongs because of the antlers on his Deer transformation

    and together they made up the MARAUDERS!
