What kind of name is Hermione?

Standard
hermione granger

 

“I hope you’re pleased with yourselves. We could all have been killed – or worse, expelled.”

I am not Hermione Granger. I’ve never been to Hogwarts, I’m not the brightest young witch of my age, and my boyfriend’s name is not Ron.

However, I have had strangers repeatedly comment upon the similarities between me and this fictional character.  I guess there are similarities.

We both

  • Have bushy brown hair
  • Have brown eyes (although mine are hazel-ish)
  • Have rather large front teeth…sadly
  • Are know for intellect and cleverness.
  • Can be quite bossy
  • Are book-smart
  • Are afraid of failure
  • Are loyal

And I’m sure there’s more. But I’m not Hermione! Unless this means that I get to ride a train to a magical school for young witches and wizards…

This is not an uncommon occurrence. Additionally, when I used one of those online “generate a nickname” site, it gave me, you guessed it, the name Hermione. Sigh.
