Pairing together Harry and Hermione in the story as it is written simply would not work. It is my thought as well as many others that Harry is a Christ-like figure in the story. Do you remember how Harry's last thoughts were of Ginny's lips on his just before he dies in The Forest Again chapter?
John 19:29-30 New International Version (NIV)
29 A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. 30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
Ginny's true name is Ginevra and Ginevra is an anagram of vinegar. Hermione is not.
