Ermin is a gender-neutral name of German and Greek origins. As a German name, Ermin derives from Herman and carries the strong and stocky meanings “whole” and “soldier,” for the worthy warrior befitting a mighty title. Ermin’s Greek roots tie it to Herminius, meaning “great” and “potent,” and may also be a form of Hermes. In Greek mythology, Hermes is not only the messenger of the gods but also rules over artful thievery, travelers, hospitality, and many other domains. Inspired by the Olympian deity, Ermin may inherit the meaning “of Hermes” for followers of this divine trickster. Whatever roots you feel drawn to, Ermin will lend an understated sophistication to your little one that may help them pull off many joyful pranks.
