    Absolutely, I think it's usable. I don't understand why linking the character to a book would make it off-limits. And as characters go, Hermione Granger is a fine "role model."

    It's absolutely usable. The HP connection is just cool, Hermione Granger rocks. For me it's also a very classic Shakespeare name, and has ties to Greek mythology, so I love it for many reasons. I think the HP connection helps, actually, people will know how to pronounce it now.

    I love Hermione. Yes, it is pretty linked to Harry Potter..but the name is rich in it's history.

    Also, once your kid grows up... there will be a new book/movie series that is all craze. Your kid will probably never get the Harry Potter connection from other kids.

    Although Harry Potter is no longer dominating the media, it is still mainstream...so I would say that it's unusable.

    It's my daughter's middle name, definitely usable. Maybe not for first name though, but it works great.
