Actually, the Harry Potter character's name is Sybill Patricia Trelawney, though in 'Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix' her first name is misspelled as 'Sybil'. Her name was also misspelled as 'Sybil' on the box for her collector character wand.

Even though this is technically the "original" spelling (taken from Sibylla), somehow Sybil became the more common variant. I'm not to keep on that spelling, though, because I keep wanting to pronounce it with a long-Y sound. I definitely prefer the look of Sibyl... though I might prefer Sibylla to both.

Sybil Ludington is a heroine of the American Revolution. She is called the 'female Paul Revere' because she rode 40 miles in darkness to warn American militiamen that the British were marching against Danbury, Connecticut. She was 16 years old at the time. She was congratulated by George Washington for her heroism.

Her name isn't actually Sibyl Trelawney, it's Sibyll Trelawney.

CYBILL or SIBYL comes from Ancient Anatolian civilizations which is also the source for many Ancient Greek things (i.e. Myths etc). KYBELE, or KIBELE is the "mother of all gods and goddesses, goddess of Earth". At ancient Anatolia women were dominant and KYBELE was like Zeus.
