Hermia's Page-This is the page where you can find out all about Hermia
Hermia's name may be based on Hermes, the Greek God of commerce and dreams. This connects with the economic reasons Demetrius and Lysander desire her, as well as their demands to be in control of her psyche, or dreams. I got this meaning from the Wikipedia Website.
