Hero vs. your honest opinion

I want to name my daughter Hero but I’m also hesitant that it’s not "professional" or people might not take her seriously, etc. So I’m 50/50. Please tell me what your honest opinion is and feel free to leave middle name ideas in the comments. Some middles I had in mind are Faith, Alyssa, Brooke, Alexandra, Mariah, something simple and pretty. Thanks :D --Elise and husband Charles

I do not like it at all. Your middle name choices are beautiful, maybe make them first/middle combos?

Alyssa Faith
Faith Mariah
Brooke Alexandra

By themselves they are too boring to me but in the middle I think they balance out Hero. Thanks! -Elise

I think it is a terrible idea but if you want to use it I think it would be better as a middle name.

Hero is masculine. Heroine is the female version and for obvious reasons, it sounds like the drug you can’t use that.

Hiro (pronounced Hero) is a male Japanese name. You could spell it like this to give it a little more legitimacy, since many male names are being used on girls lately.

Hiro Alyssa or Hiro Alexa would be pretty.

Hero is actually a girl in Greek mythology and I was inspired by the character Hero in Shakespeare’s Much Ado about Nothing. There’s no way in Hell I’m naming her Heroine. I thought of Hiro as well but I didn’t want spelling confusion. Thanks -Elise :)

Definitely don’t like it. It is masculine and unprofessional. Maybe it could work as a mn because most people would never hear it.

Alyssa Brooke, Mariah Brooke or Alexandra Faith from your choices would be gorgeous names though!

I dislike it, sorry. I think Hera would work, however.
I know Hero was a famous woman in the classics but now it sounds like a male name and a rather pretentious one at that.

If I heard the name Hero, I would assume it was a boy. It’s too manly sounding and kind of ridiculous and a lot to live up to as a name.

Hero nowadays is seen as masculine despite being the name of a female demi-god. If you were having a boy I’d say go for it, but don’t use it on a girl. I know a couple of celebrities have used but I don’t think it’s okay.
Can I suggest the name Hera?

Hero sounds like a great name for a male dog. I’d recommend Hera instead. Mariah Alexandra or Mariah Faith would be my choice.

All associations aside, I like the sound. I’ve heard of it before on a girl, but it actually makes me think of the sub sandwich. I think it would work much better as a middle name. Also, it doesn’t seem to flow right with your last name. It might be a stretch but what about Henrietta, Hermione, Herona, etc. and calling her Hero if you are open to name suggestions. If you do decide to go with it, I like Hero Alexandra Charles.

Hero does not sound like a very good name especially for a little girl. If I met a "Hero" I’d think "are your parents crazy!?" It’s in the category of names like Heaven Lee and Princess which are actual names of girls I’ve come across.

I honestly love the name Hero.

It’s a terrible name.
