Is the Title Hary Potter and the Deathly Hallows, or Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows?
The first sounds like the Deathly Hallows are artifacts of some sort. The second, like a place - possible an archaic name for Godric's Hollow.

I think many (myself very much included) are taking a work of FICTION entirely too seriously, but . . . it's all in fun! and JKR has made it fun!
I have to say that I tend to agree somewhat SPF. I know that JKR is some bright woman but there are also some very bright contributors to these threads and to other online sites. If JKR had thought of every scenario that has been raised, been aware of every biblical and other reference, have been aware of every comparison that has been made she would have to be a genius and a considerably older genius than she is.
I am sure that much of what has been raised is coincidence and many theories no more than wild speculation.
I don't think that JKR has considered all of the implications of her books - but she doesn't need to, because she had the masterstroke of choosing mythological images that contain so much of their own significance that the mere reiteration of them produces profound resonances within each of us.
There is a reason these symbols have survived - I think it is because they function as perfect metaphors of psychologically embedded truths. By tapping into them, JKR is giving a somewhat mystical experience - an experience we know we are in the grip of when we sit here typing into the night to discuss it; when we will weather the comments of friends and loved ones, because we know there is something more here.
In summary, the books have tapped into us so deeply because the mythic symbols JKR has chosen are hard wired into us, as humans.
Have you read the previous 6 books for both versions?
I am sure you will see the differences if you did....
