Greek, female form of Hermes

Hermia Origin and Meaning

The name Hermia is a girl's name of Greek origin meaning "messenger".

Though we've gotten used to Hermione via Harry Potter, and even Hermes with its godlike and fashion associations, most people would still have a problem with Hermia (too close to hernia?) and Herman.

On the other hand Hermia does have Shakespearean cred, as a character in A Midsummer Night's Dream.
