Thats quite sexist. just because it was 'half blood prince' doesnt mean that it could have been a girl.
If it were a girl, she wanted to have that name to cover up who she really was, the 'prince' bit could have just made it more confusing to who ever was trying to figure out who the half blood prince was.

Re: half blood prince a girl

I know this is a very old post but it is a very interesting topic. Personally I feel Hermione thinks HBP is a girl because HBP was very good at potions and she did not like the idea that a girl, i.e. herself, could not be that brilliant. This is confirmed by Hermione telling Harry that he thinks a girl isn't clever enough later on in chapter 25.
EDITED for grammar mistakes.

A mirror to the idea that only boys are good at STEM subjects.

Re: half blood prince a girl

Could be Hermione was pushing her friends to think outside the box, and also to be less sexist. And honestly, how many masculine/feminine pseudonyms have you seen on here, who have turned out to be another gender?

Re: half blood prince a girl

Agree with you. It's a big twist that Half-Blood Prince is a girl. Noone in right mind would think Prince is a girl. Hermione was behaving awkwardly there
