Gender: F Meaning of Hermia: "messenger" Origin of Hermia: Greek, female form of Hermes

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.
