  Published named include Khermeen and Kheermen, as well as Khermin and
Hermiin Tsav and Tsab, and have jumbled them into one word or two. Don't
ask me, ask the consolidators. I picked one possible spelling, where "b"
and "v" are effectively interchangeable, and used it.

<This spelling must have gone through Japanese. It's really Nemegt. I have
 the catalogue of an exhibition on the "dinosaurs and mammals of the Gobi"
 which was in Paris in 1992/3, and it includes a map of Mongolian fossil 
localities (Cambrian to Pleistocene) in Mongolian.>

  This spelling went through Russian, and is heavily featured in
Barsbold's work as well, I beleive, Maleyev's. Ask them.

  Little steps are often the hardest to take.  We are too used to making leaps 
in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard to do.  We should all 
learn to walk soft, walk small, see the world around us rather than zoom by it.
