Meaning:Messenger, earthly
Hermione is a feminine name of Greek origin. This lovely name is steeped in cultural and historical significance. If you're a Greek mythology buff but might need a name that more subtly harkens to it, this name is a take on the Greek god Hermes. Hermes was the son of Zeus and Maia and known for being quick and undeniably clever. But, you most likely know the name Hermione to mean quick and clever because of the famous novel and movie series Harry Potter. Hermione was known for being the brightest witch at Hogwarts from her year and likely many others. She embodies the geek and the activist in us all and will no doubt be a source of inspiration for baby.
