Gryffin Remus, Harry Potter Reference?

So I just got to Balmorra with my Bounty Hunter and picked up a quest from a guy named Gryffin Remus. I instantly thought of Remus Lupin from the Harry Potter universe. It makes it kind of obvious since his first name is Gryffin, and Remus Lupin was in the Gryffindor house during his time at Hogwarts. But I want to know if this really is a reference and if any other players noticed this aswell.

I noticed it too! I hope someone snuck it in as a little nod to Harry Potter.

There are all kinds of Easter Eggs in the game, but they're mostly really subtle. This one is particularly well-done.

Speaking of Harry Potter, I was wondering if this was a reference to the Sorting Hat

There are also a couple characters named "Sandor" in Kaas City and "Lt. Clegane" in the game. The Hound from Game of Thrones. Not to mention Elara Dorne as a possible GoT reference as well.

Yes, i have laughed, when i have seen this npc
First: My absolutely Harry Potter favorite charackter is Remus Lupin and i would go to Gryffindor (i am a Harry Potter fan and SW).
So my fictional name is Remus Gryffindor, like my youtube channel (RemusGryffindorLP, no spam). I say that in one of my lets plays too.
It's very cool, that there is a Easter Egg like this.

Ummm... completely besides that, there's an Imp quartermaster named Psy or something similar on one of the earlier planets. Fun names

And I would be either Gryffindor or Ravenclaw.
My favorite character is probably Snape. He's an ******e to everybody until the 7th book, where he saves the freaking country 'cause hes to scared to give Voldemort the Elder Wand's full power. My favorite weapon from the series, however, would either be the Decoy Detonators or Lucius Malfoy's cane-wand thing.

In the beginning of BH week, you are told that disintegration is no longer an acceptable means of completing bounties, this being a reference to a line Vader has to Boba Fett in Empire Strikes Back.
