User comments for Hermione (Pronunciation Only)

J.K. Rowling cleverly led fans mispronouncing Hermione to know the truth. Viktor Krum (you Harry Potter fanatics like me know who I'm talking about) always pronounces it Hermy-own. It is actually her-MY-oh-knee.

In Spain it is pronounced "Er-mee-ON".

JK Rowling has heard several different ponounciations of this name, which she finds amusing: Hermy-own, her-my-nee, Her-mee-oh-knee, and her personal favorite, Hermy-one (XD, Star Wars flashback).

The proper pronunciation is Her-my-oh-knee.

Since I don't read or watch Harry Potter, I'm not influenced by any Harry Potter pronunciations of this name. I like to pronounce it her-MY-uh-NEE, although I know most people would say it her-MY-nee.

In Czech Republic it is pronounced "Hehr-mee-awn-ah" (shortly).

This is probably one of the hardest names to pronounce unless you hear it spoken (thanks, Harry Potter). But after I heard the correct pronunciation, it became one of my favorite names.

Her MY o NEE.

I really like this name, but I'm not sure I'd ever use it due to pronunciation issues. I'd probably save it for a middle name.
BTW, in Greek it is pronounced er-mee-oh-NEE. Of course, I'd use the English pronunciation, but I do like how it is pronounced in Greek, too.

Everyone I know who read Harry Potter books always pronounced it differently, like Hermy-one or Her-mion-a or anything but Her-my-nee.
