Comments for Hermione (Famous Bearer Only)

1
Famous for Harry Potter's friend Hermione Granger. It sounds 'Her-MY-o-nee' but in Korea, translator translated it wrong to 'Her-mee-on-neu'. It sounds totally different. I was slightly confused during the first Harry Potter movie, the sorcerer's stone, when I heard Hermione introducing herself 'Her-MY-o-nee' after I read the book in Korean. I think everbody who read the book in Korean would have. Anyway, I don't really blame the translator because the name Hermione was difficult and confusing to pronounce. Besides, in the interview, author J. K. Rowling heard this situation and said she preferd this pronunciation more. :p

Hermione is also mentioned in John Milton's Paradise Lost (Book 9). He is referring to the mythical Hermione, Cadmus's wife, founders of Thebes, who were turned into serpents when they went to Illyria.

A famous bearer of this name is British television and radio presenter Hermione Cockburn (b. 1973, Sussex, England). I also think this is a wonderfully lovely name. :)

Hermione is usually associated with the book and movie series 'Harry Potter', but actually, what comes to mind when I think of the name is one of the minor characters from my favourite cartoon, 'Mike, Lu, & Og'. Hermione is a Cuzzlewit girl. (The Cuzzlewits are the people who live on the other side of the island that the show takes place on.) In the episode, 'The Three Amigas', Lu gets jealous when Mike and Hermione become friends.

Jean Racine wrote a play called "Andromaque" (French for Andromache) in which Hermione (daughter of Menelaus and Helene) is a main character. Orestes is in love with her but she's in love with Pyrrhus who's in love with Andromache who still loves her late husband. In the end, Hermione asks Orestes to kill Pyrrhus and when he does, she rejects him (because he killed the man she loved), and Orestes becomes insane. Hermione has quite a temper in this play.

Before Harry Potter, Hermione was in France an example of a furious lover who becomes murderous when her love is rejected. People who know the name by this play aren't likely to name their daughter Hermione!

In 1945's film "Brief Encounter", actress Nuna Davey has a brief role (pun not intended) as Mary's cousin "Hermione". This is an example of one of the few usages of this name in the media.

The daughter of Helen of Troy and Menelaus was called Hermione. When Helen was kidnapped by/ran off with Prince Paris of Troy, she took Hermione's baby brother, Nicostratus, with her, but left Hermione behind. Interesting to wonder what Hermione was doing for ten years while the rest of her family was in Troy.

Hermione is a used in a story written by William Shakespeare. In the story she dies when she faints when her husband Leonates accuses her of loving another man. I read the twenty tales of Shakespeare and it is very good. I hope you read it.

Hermione is perhaps the female name for Hermes. It's difficult to pronounce and unpopular, but a good and very rare name. Famous bearers are the main character in Shakespeare's 'Winter's Tale' and of course a female leading character in JK Rowling's Harry Potter series.

I first saw this name in the title of a David Bowie song - Letter to Hermione - (he never actually sings it, so for years I mispronounced it). Then along came Harry Potter (which I'm a fan of, but still).

Not only is this name a Shakespearean character, it is also a great, dark main belt asteroid. It was discovered 5/12/1872 by J. C. Watson. He named it Hermione after the daughter of Helen and Melelaus in Greek mythology. So think about this before naming your girl "great dark main belt."
