The name Hermione is a girl's name of Greek origin meaning "messenger, earthly". Hermione and is often added to lists like Old Lady Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "A brother or sister for little Jack or Olivia".
From the experts:
Hermione's costarring role in Harry Potter has made this previously ignored, once stodgy name suddenly viable. Hermione could really take off once today's children start having kids of their own.
In ancient Greek myth, Hermione is the daughter of Spartan King Menelaus and his wife Helen; in pre-Potter lit, the name appears in Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale and in Walter Scott's novel The Fortunes of Nigel.
