Miscellaneous Info for Hermine

  • Categories:
  • Used in:
    Dutch, French, German and Armenian speaking countries
  • Additional Info:
    Hermine has a double etymology. It may be a German feminine form of Hermann (pronounced her-MEE-nuh). As a French given name (pronounced err-MEEN), it is also identical to the vocabulary word for "stoat" and "ermin"; from the Latin 'armenius mus' meaning "rat of Armenia". The latter seems rather ironic considering the name Hermine is also used in Armenia with the last of the three given pronunciations.
