When I think of Hector, I think of the character "Hector Zeroni" from "Holes" with the nickname "Zero" at camp Greenlake.

Hector Sanroman was a character in the famous serial from Mexico "La Madrastra." Every time I hear this name it makes me think of him because it fitted him and the even the meaning did.

I like this name for a character. Sounds very mysterious and interesting.

Hector was one of the main characters in the seventh Fire Emblem game, and the father of Lilina in Fire Emblem 6.

This is the first name of Captain Barbossa from POTC (Pirates of the Caribbean). It's revealed in the commentary. Captain Hector Barbossa, kinda sounds odd but I like it. Captain Barbossa is my favorite character and Captain Sparrow is my favorite. I guess I have a thing for Captains.

I think Hector is a wonderful name. It's so handsome and sweet sounding. Plus my boyfriend is named Hector. It makes him sound like a Greek God ;)

To 'Hector' someone means to pester them. I feel sorry for anyone whose name is Hector, for the reason stated previous to this statement.

Hektor´s nicknames are Hek, Tor, Torek, Tori, Ettore.

I think Hector is a really strong, nice sounding name. It's not really awkward or anything.

To me, Hector is one of those names which you either love or you hate - I used to hate it but I read a few books and one of the characters were named Hector and I grew to like it. It does seem a bit nerdy though!

In the Scottish highlands Hector is commonly used as an Anglicised form of Eachann. For a long time before I found this site I thought it was actually a Scottish name!

Another nickname for Hector is Teto (TEH-toh).

Frankly, I think this name sounds hopelessly old-fashioned and almost pompous today. If I heard a parent shout: ''Hector, come here!'', I'd either roll my eyes or burst out laughing, depending on my mood. The name sounds quite vintage-elitist and harsh. I can only imagine middle-aged and old men named Hector, and, quite frankly, the image I get is that of a hairy and rather chubby man.

I don't agree with that last comment at all. Hector is probably my favorite name of all time. I used to think of this as an old man's name, but now I'd really like to see it resurrected. Now, I picture a distinguished Victorian gentleman (probably has a lot to do with Saki and General Hector MacDonald).

This name is fantastic. It is actually being used with some regularity today amongst the middle and upper-classes of the United Kingdom.

Hector was the noblest hero out of all the main players in the Iliad. I feel as though this name should only go toward the worthy; it's just that sort of name.

King Arthur's foster father was Ector, not Hector.
― Anonymous User  11/16/2009
King Arthur's foster-father's name WAS Hector. Ector is a shortening of the Latin form of Hector, Ectorius.

In T.H. White's "The Once and Future King" he even includes a passage where a child is learning about the Trojan War and asks if Hector of Troy is the name person as Sir Ector.

When I think of someone named Hector, I think of a mature man with good leadership. But when I think of my COUSIN Hector, I think of a slick, highly attractive teenager who is really mean to me. But that's just my life.

It's one of those names I never really have considered but it is not an ugly name by any means. :)

Makes me think of the character from "Holes". Loved the movie, but I'm not too fond of the name. I don't know why; I guess it just sounds he-man ish to me.
Black_X  12/30/2010
I love the name Hector. It sounds strong and honest and the meaning of the character in Homer's Iliad was very noble and honourable. It seems to be fairly unusual, apart from in the Outer Hebrides where it is very common, along with George and Alastair.

Hector MacQueen is one of the characters of Agatha Christie's famous novel "Murder on the Orient Express".

I used to not like this name. It gave the impression of being old, and I did not like the way it sounded.
However, I read the Iliad and wow, let me tell you, that changed my whole perspective on the name. Hector was truly a noble man, and now I see the name in such a positive light. I really think if you dislike this name, read the Iliad. It'll give you some different perspective.
