Warning: irreverent post ahead I remember reading about the different ways people pronounced Hermes. Here's a lil' contribution.... Was having a nice time catching up with my brother over dinner and the topic turned to Hermes. I was going Hermes this, Hermes that, Hermes lalala and my brother nodded and seemed to know what I was talking about. Until he asked, "And what's this brand named after?" "One of the gods in the Greek pantheon," I replied *Pregnant Pause* "Oh! You mean HURMS!"
