Moony is the codename for Remus Lupin, the werewolf, as one of the Marauders. Prongs is James Potter, referring to the fact that his Animagus is a stag. Wormtail- Peter Pettigrew, whose Animagus is a rat. Padfoot is Sirius, who turns into a huge black dog.
When Harry opens the Marauders Map, the opening title reads...
Messrs Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs humbly present The Marauders Map
