When you read Harry Potter before any of the movies came out, figuring out how to pronounce "Hermione" correctly was a real bitch. Amirite?

That's how I used to say it.

in the fourth book it tells you how to pronounce it as hermione instructs viktor krum on his pronunciation... this is when i figured it out.

I thought it was Herm-ee-oh-knee. In the chapter when theyre on the train and she's looking for the frog, i was like "eh whatever it's not gonna be that important later on"

I always knew...cause I'm a badass. Also cause I actually knew a girl named Hermione before I started reading them.

i always thought it was her-me-own until the movies came out xD

Me and my sister bet in who pronounced it right. We were both wrong...
I said it was 'Herme-on-eee"
She said it was "Her-mi-knee"

I'll admit she was closer, but we agreed we were both wrong.

In Greek, we write words exactly how they're pronounced. I feel badass for not having problems with it. 8D
... But it's true that I was confused about the English pronouncation

I could never pronounce Accio, Beauxbatons, or Thestrals. i got a little dyslexic with thestrals and pronounced it "threstrals" and always got tongue-tied

I just asked my footballer friend to read and pronounce "Beuaxbatons"...about twelve seconds later, he said "Box-bat-uhns." Hahaha.

@I could never pronounce Accio, Beauxbatons, or Thestrals. i got a little dyslexic with thestrals and pronounced it...

My sister read the books out loud to me and absolutely butchered all of the pronunciations. She said threshals or something...

i found out when i watched the movie

i was in first grade, so my dad read them to me for the most part, and he was saying her-mee-own for the whole first book. then we got around to seeing the movie...
