Meaning & History
French feminine form of HERMAN, which was influenced or inspired by Latin, in that French names ending in -ce usually come from Latin names ending in -tius (for males) and -tia (for females). For example: Maxentius became MAXENCE in French and Constantia became CONSTANCE.Lastly, you might also want to take a look at the names ARMANCE and HERMANDE, which are quite similar in appearance and have the exact same etymology at the root.
