There are 84 Hero names for baby boys. From ancient civilizations to contemporary dystopias illustrated by fantasy literature, heroes have fought battles, slain dragons and won hearts. Whether they were normal, everyday figures, or renowned leaders, heroes form an indispensable part of mankind’s collective story. While names of heroes – or action heroes, for that matter, often inspire a generation of similarly-named children, names that strictly name hero present quite an interesting range. These include Dooley, which means dark hero; Herod, which means song of a hero; and Sweeney, meaning small hero.
