Thread: Hermione - unusable?
June 11th, 2013 05:38 PM #16
I don't think it's unusable. But I asked my husband just to be sure LOL! He said he knew a girl named Hermione in college. She was obviously named before Harry Potter was a thing and she was also British. Apparently it's fairly common there (or at least not unheard of). If you use it, people will probably assume you're a big fan of Harry Potter. But, people are naming their kids Bella and Edward and Renesme (sp) because of Twilight - I'd rather have a name associated with Harry Potter than Twilight!

I think even now, you'll have a lot of pronunciation issues (after all not everyone is a potterhead) with it, which makes me think it's better as a middle name.
I also love Harry Potter and I definitely can see people assuming that you like/love/obsess over Harry Potter. So you might get comments "Oh, like Harry Potter!" or "OH! You must be a Harry Potter fan" So just prepare yourself for that if you do use it as a name at all.

I actually really love the name Hermione, just by itself. It has some amazing literary roots and I love the sound of it as well. And I don't see the Harry Potter attachment as a hindrance at all - Hermione Granger is an amazing role model for a child. Although I may be biased, because I'm a big Harry Potter fan anyway.
