Within the Wizarding World are a wide variety of magical identities that wizards or magical creatures use to describe themselves. Many of these identities are based on their ancestry or species. Other times, wizards choose to identify themselves based on their skills and attributes, or designations they receive from their work.
The Harry Potter books provide some details, but many details about magical identities you might not be aware of come from outside the main series.
