Comments (Pronunciation Only)

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.

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.

Her MY o NEE.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.
