Potter Trivia Question

ABC Family channel recently had a Harry Potter weekend so I got to watch all the movies again and I had a question...

On the Marauders' Map, it is titles Mssrs. Mooney, Padfoot, Wormtail, and Prongs.

I've deduced the following

Mooney = Professor Lupin (werewolf and the MOON turns him)
Padfoot = Sirius Black (I heard the nickname used since he likes to turn into a dog)
Wormtail = Peter Pettigrew (turned himself into a rat)

but I can only assume Prongs is James Potter, Harry's dad...

but how did he get the nickname Prongs?

Or is someone else Prongs?

Can anyone here clear up my mystery??? PLEASE???

THANKS!

You are correct; James Potter is Prongs. He was an animagus who could turn himself into a stag. His large, prominent antlers are his "prongs," hence the nickname.

And now I am seriously considering a Harry Potter marathon of my own, so thanks!!!

OK, that never came up in any of the movies but I remember Harry thinking he saw his father when he saved Sirius with the Patronus charm the first time... I remember seeing a stag then...
