Is written Fermín, with an acute accent, and pet forms of the name are "Fermintxo" or simply "Mintxo" (of Basque and Navarre usage).

Is more common in the northern part of Spain than in the south, specifically in the Basque Country and Navarre autonomic communities, as its origins lay in Pamplona. [noted -ed]
