Hi

Heinrich Göring had five children from his first marriage,five children(including Hermann) from his second marriage.

Heinrich Göring's father was also a Wilhelm Göring,Hermann's grandfather.

Hermann had a stepbrother,'Willi' Göring,so it may be him.He was a retired Major at the time of the BeerHall Putsch in 1923.

The Army Doctor,Hermann von Epenstein,the later live in lover of Hermann's mother,had also served in DSWA.Heinrich may have named his son after this man.
