Origin of the name IRMIN.
Etymology of the name IRMIN.
Meaning of the baby name IRMIN.


IRMIN.  The name of an old Saxon deity.  He is supposed to have been an analogue of the Scandinavian deity Tyr, which see. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).  Variously rendered "a demi-god," "a warrior," "mighty, powerful," "public, universal, the whole of mankind," "very large."  Also see Eorman, and Irman.

... The name of Arminius, Armin, Ermin, or Irmin, is not, as some writers have supposed, the same as Herman; this opinion, as Foerstemann observes, is to be considered as now completely set aside.  It is a simple, not a compound word; its root is arm, erm, irmóthe ending in being only phonetic; its meaning, as Grimm observes, is altogether obscure.  Many names compounded from it occur in the genealogies of the kings of Kent and Mercia, as Eormenric, Eormenred, Eormengild, &c.  There are traces of Irmin as the name of a deity in the ancient German mythology. (The Teutonic Name-system, Ferguson, 1864)
