Why did JK Rowling choose the name Hogwarts for the legendary wizarding school?
Because that was a cool name for it, and it made it sound more magical.
The starter Pokemon you choose determines which legendary beast you can capture. If you choose bulbasaur, you can catch Entei, the lion Pokemon,if you choose squirtle,you can catch Raikou, the tiger Pokemon, and if you choose charmander,you can catch Suicune, the cheetah Pokemon. (You have to beat the Elite 4 and have the national pokedex)
Why did J.K. Rowling choose Daniel Radcliffe to play Harry Potter when the fact that Harrys eyes are green is so heavily emphasized in the books and Daniels eyes are blue?
J.K. Rowling did not choose the cast of Harry Potter, that was the casting director's job. When Daniel Radcliffe was cast only Rowling herself knew the importance of the green eyes and they did plan to make Radcliffe wear contacts. Rowling stated that it didn't really matter what colour his eyes were, so long as his mother had the same eyes.
