Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - Doesn't She Forget Hagrid?
On page 169 of my copy of Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban Harry is called into Professor Lupin's offices (this is during the day that everyone's off to Hogsmeade, and Harry has to stay behind. Chapter eight). After a while professor Lupin says the name of Voldemort, and then J.K. Rowling says this: "Harry stared. Not only was this the last awnser he'd expected, but Lupin had said Voldemorts name. The only person Harry had ever heard say the name aloud (apart from himself) was professor Dumbledore." The thing is that in the first book (Harry potter and the philosopher's stone) Hagrid told Harry about what really happened to his parents on page 45 (Chapter 4). Here J.K. Rowling says this: "'could you write it down?' harry suggested. 'nah can't spell it. All right - Voldemort.'" So Harry didn't only hear Dumbledore say Voldemort's name, but also heard Hagrid say it.
Special Requirements:
You need the first Harry Potter book (Harry Potter and the philosopher's stone) and the third one (Harry potter and the prisoner of Azkaban).

I think that when she says to say Voldemort's name that they use his name freely. Hagrid did not want to say his name, but how else could he have told Harry about him? Only Lupin, Harry, and Dumbledore use Voldemort's name freely.

Yes, but I think she means that Harry is shocked to find someone saying Voldemort's name of their own free will. Hagrid didn't want to, but Harry didn't know who he was talking about and he couldn't write it down for him.

I agree totally with SugarFly26. Hagrid didn't want to say Voldemort's name, Hagrid had to say it because he can't spell, and when he did, it sounded like he flinched! So the only people who actually had the nerve to say Lord Voldemort's name IN FREE-WILL is Harry himself, Lupin, and Dumbledore.

Maybe it meant the only other person to have said Voldermorts name WILLINGLY, Harry practically forced Hagrid to say the name.

JKRowling obviously meant they were the only ones who could say it freely. Hagrid didn't want to say it, but because he couldn't write it he HAD to say it.

THIS IS NOT A SLIPUP! Hagrid doesn't say it willingly, so he doesn't count.

I think when they said this, it's meant the name was never said by anyone else without worrying, or at free will. But i can understand why you were confused.

I think J.K Rowling meant that Lupin was the only other person (besides Dumbledore) to say You-Know-Who's real name casually, without being scared. Hagrid didn't want to say it, but did because Harry didn't know his name, Hagrid never again said his real name, in any book (so far.)

Now that's splitting hairs. Rowling clearly conveys that Hagrid wasn't among the people who would say the name unflinchingly. If she had to satisfy your eye for detail, you would deny her all but first listed dictionary definition of every word in the language.

You have good eyes I admit, but Hagrid spoke the dark ones name against his will. Dumbledore says it as easily as if he were saying a students name.

I think the key word here is "aloud". Hagrid kind of whispered it!
