Hi guys, I'm sure you all have heard or come across the brand name Hermès before. I'm just wondering how it's correctly pronounced. Hermès is also an Olympian god, son of Zeus in the greek mythology. So is it pronounced Er-Meez? or Air-May? Anybody out there knows?

you asian people have no flair for language.its pronounced "hoimess" like with a cockney accent,the way french people wanted it to sound.broken up its "HOY-MESS" 'Hoy' like the way an indian woman would yell at you if you stood up in front of her in the cinema 'mess' like the unkept things in your room your dad used to yell at you about.
