The name Herman is a boy's name of German origin meaning "soldier, warrior". Herman and is often added to lists like Geeks Forever and discussed in our forums with posts like "A brother or sister for little Jack or Olivia".
From the experts:
It's hard to believe now that Herman was once, at the turn of the last century, a Top 50 name, remaining in the Top 100 until 1935, and even harder to imagine it making a comeback. But then again, our parents thought the same thing about Max and Jake. Consider the French Armand or Spanish Armando instead. Notable bearers include writers Herman Melville and Hermann Hesse--and then there was TV's Herman Munster.
