And the verb, I found out from your link, is hagride.

The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language: Fourth Edition. 2000.

hagride

SYLLABICATION: hag·ride

TRANSITIVE VERB: Inflected forms: hag·rode, hag·rid·den, hag·rid·ing, hag·rides

To torment or harass, especially with worry or dread: “a man hagridden by the future—haunted by visions of an imminent heaven or hell upon earth” (C.S. Lewis).

Given this info, Hagrid does not seem to be a fitting name for this gentle giant.
