Why is Gryffindor's symbol a lion and not a gryffin?

Because historically lions represent courage like king richard lionheart. Lionheart wasn't his actual name but he was allegedly a very brave king because of some british ****. Maybe he said "tea is only okay". Who the **** knows.

But in Gryffindor, bravery and courage are traits that someone has to have to be a part of that house, hence the symbol.

Richard the Lionheart removed kebab in the Crusades and spent the rest of his time fighting the French.
Both are glorious British pastimes.

If you are clever enough to understand why the symbol's an eagle then you are clever enough for Ravenclaw

The Ravenclaw animal has always been an eagle in the books, but in the films it is depicted as a raven. People assume that the symbol of Ravenclaw should be a raven, but by that logic, the symbol of Gryffindor should be a griffin. Ravenclaw is the surname of the founder, and the eagle was her symble. All i was able to dig up.

it has nothing to do with the fact that ravenclaw was her name...it's like asking why gryffindor is a lion and not a gryphon or why hufflepuff is a badger and not...a horklump i guess

At least Slytherin makes sense. Should also be said that a Gryphon is half lion, half eagle.

It's pretty obvious what Hufflepuff's symbol should be. I'll give you a hint:

With a ____ and a _____ I'll blow your house in!

Here is my interpretation.
A raven's eyes are far worse than an eagles, but an eagle's claws are far less tenacious than a ravens. So in compromise, the group took the best of the two.
Yeah I know eagles mean freedom and air and stuff like that.

I doubt Ms.Umbridge would talk like that. She'd be more of a bitch.

"Why is the Ravenclaw symbol an eagle?"

They named it Ravenclaw because they already knew their name couldn't be any worse than "Hufflepuff".
