Gender: M Pronunciation: heer-ON-ee-mos Meaning of Hieronymus: "sacred name" Origin of Hieronymus: German variation of Jerome

This cognate of Jerome (of all things), familiar via the Dutch painter of fantastical scenes, H. Bosch, would appeal only to the most audacious, intrepid, attention-seeking baby namer. It is, however, still used in Germany, especially in Catholic Bavaria and in the north German Rhineland.
