32 Popular Baby Names That Are Often Mispronounced
If you are a Harry Potter fan, you will know exactly how to pronounce Hermione. Any confusion while reading the books was adorably cleared up when Hermione teaches Viktor Krum the correct way to say her name. It is wrong to assume that everyone is a Harry Potter fan and therefore knows how to pronounce the beautiful girls’ name. (Some busy adults and young kids might not have read the books yet.) The official Harry Potter way, according to J.K. Rowling in the book is “Her-my-oh-nee.” There are likely some people, like Viktor, who have called the name “Hermy-own.” Some also say “Her-MI-oh-nee” instead of “my” in the middle. Depending on your accent, you might drop the “h” at the start of then name.
