    I have NO idea who these people are - but I hate Hero as a name.

    It surprises me that Holly Madison's Rainbow gets a more frosty reception than Hero - especially for a girl, such a masculine sounding name.

    There's a UK based "celebrity" who named her daughter Hero too - I hated it then as well

    Well, and what about the lady Hero from the Greek story of Hero and Leander? Isn't that the first literary use of the name? It seems strange to me that the word hero entered our language with a very masculine, "Superman" image, but given that image it does seem oddly macho on a girl. I also dislike Peregrine on a girl. However, Hero Peregrine is a pretty good followup to Brave Little Wing.
    "He telleth the number of the stars; He calleth them all by their names."
    Psalm 147:4

    Still dreaming:
    Tobias Rory Benjamin ~ Crispin Isaiah ~ Ransom Horatio ~ Lucius Olórin ~ James Deliverance
    Una Marguerite/Oona Sylvestra ~ Jessamyn Agnes ~ Branwen Evangeline ~ Alice Emmanuelle ~ Christiana Linnet

    Isn't Hero as the Shakespearian name meant to be said differently to hero the word? The former more like Herro - Hello but with Rs in, and the latter Hear-oh.
