Hart is my son's middle name and I absolutely adore it. I wanted it as his first name but my husband didn't agree so we compromised. Now we are having our second boy and part of me wishes I saved it so I could have used it for his first name!

I think this would make a great middle name (or first name I suppose)! Somehow it sounds light and friendly (I from associating it with the heart) but also manly and strong due to it being short and sharp, I also associate with brave heart so that adds to the manliness of it.
