[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there! Me and my partner are expecting a baby girl later this year. I’ve kept a name list for several years, but since I fell pregnant… I’ve become absolutely fixated on the name [name_u]Hero[/name_u]. Yep yep, I know it’s an acquired taste that some will never like. I love the romantic notions associated with it, that it has both a history in mythology and Shakespearean connotations, that it is at once classical but feels distinctly modern.
[name_m]Alas[/name_m], my partner has vetoed it. I am devastated (and still kind of hoping I can work on him over the next 6 months…).
Her middle name will be ‘Stefania’ which is a compromise we have come to (to honour his late sister Stephanie). This is not a name I would have chosen otherwise.
So, the question is… any [name_u]Hero[/name_u] alternatives that you could suggest? Nothing I’ve come up with so far inspires me quite so much.
