This name derives from the Germanic root “*ermunaz > irmin / ermen”, meaning “strong, whole, tall, exalted, whole, great, powerful”. This name also is the abbreviated form of names beginning with the element "Irm-", for example, Irmine, Irmina, Irmela, Irmgard, Irmgardis, Irmentraud, Irmhild, and Irmhilde. Irmina of Oeren or Irmina of Trier († 704 / 710) was the wife of Hugobert, seneschal and Count palatine, a leading person of the Hugobertine noble family. While during the High Middle Ages she was believed to be a daughter of King Dagobert II, her parents are actually unknown. Today it is assumed that she came from a powerful Austrasian noble family, strongly connected to the Carolingian dynasty.
