Heroic Names – Hero Names
Heroic baby names are the names of Heroes and Heroines from mythology, literature and science fiction films and publications, comics and other. These characters showcase mortal (or non-mortal) identity, symbolize nobility and royalty and are defined by the ultimate representation of the powers or super powers they possess.
Heroes are found in tales, stories and myths who displayed great courage and self sacrifice when faced danger and adversity, mostly martial courage and excellence in battles, fights and wars.
The word hero comes from the Greek “ἥρως” (heroes), “Ήρωας”, “hero, warrior”, literally meaning “protector” or “defender”. In Ancient Greek mythology and folklore, heroes ((heroines for females) were usually demigods, a son or daughter from one immortal (like one of the twelve Gods of Olympus) and one mortal parent. An example is Heracles, “Ηρακλής”, son of the King of Gods, Zeus, “Δίας” and a mortal queen Alcmene, “Αλκμήνη”. See also God and Goddess baby names for more information about god and goddess names.
