Hero names

Hero names are an alternative to having a family name as a middle name, by using the spot to honor a hero, whether political, historical or otherwise. Hero baby names and what they mean, for hero.

These boy names were at the apex of their popularity in 2014 (usage of 0.248%), except for names such as Nelson, Cedric, Leander, Sherwood and Ulysses which have fallen out of style. The more fashionable baby names in this list are Odin (#476), Rhett (#338), Gideon (#349), Beau (#228) and Finn (#234), and there is a revival in birth name usage for Gideon. Joson (top 36%) and Govin (46%) are familiar last names.
