This really is a nice name. The pronunciation is very sweet-sounding. The only problem I have is that the name looks like "Ermine".

This name has also been frequently used in The Netherlands before the 1980s; nowadays, it's not used all that often anymore, since it is generally seen as somewhat old-fashioned. But one is still likely to find it in the country's top 1000 for all ages.

The Dutch pronunciation for Hermine is the same as the German pronunciation. However, that pronunciation is often used in the north of the country - in the south of the Netherlands, most people would pronounce it as her-MEEN. As such, one could say that there are two possible Dutch pronunciations for this name.
