How do you pronounce Hermione?


Her-my-oh-nee
Check the movies,they say it like this


her-my-nee


To tell the truth, I had no idea until I heard it pronounced in the movie as Her-MI-oh-nee. I heard it in my head sort of like Her-Miney.


Her-mi-oh-nee


Her-my-oh-nee.


In the fourth book she tries to teach Victor Krum how to say her name. The pronunciation is there.


Well, they're British, so if you want to say it in a british accent, say it like everyone has been telling you to. If you want to say it in american English, just say Her-my-nee. Hope this helps :D


This is from the site behind the name:

It is originally a Greek Mythology name.

her-my-oh-nee


Christian got it right! It's as she was trying to teach Krum at the Yule Ball dinner. She keeps trying to tell him "her-my-oh-nee".


Until I heard it aloud in the movie, I thought it was Her-mi-knee, but now I pronounce it as it should me, Her-my-oh-knee. :)
