What’s Your Hero Name Crush?

December 30, 2014 Pamela Redmond

Hero names (and we include heroine names in that category) have been on the rise in recent years, with choices such as Harper and Hadley, Lincoln and Edison leaping up the popularity lists.

Hero names can take the form of a last name, as in Landry, surname of Dallas Cowboys coach Tom, used for both genders.  Hero names may also be distinctive first names such as Anais or Elvis that directly reference their more famous bearer.  Or they can be more ordinary names such as Georgia or Miles that provide a more subtle nod to the original.

What hero names are you crushing on right now?  Are you attracted to the hero first, the name first, or do you have to love both in equal measure?

And what are some names of beloved heroes — such as Einstein, maybe — you might nominate for wider use?
