Hera was the wife of Zeus and notoriously jealous, especially of his 'lady friends' and successful children.

She was very jealous of the women who her husband slept with in addition to her, and would inflict horrible punishments on them, no matter what their innocence.

She was so mean - she threw Hephaestus off the mountain!

Yes, and she also went after Zeus's extra-marital children - including Hercules, the most admired hero in Greece.

Yes, Hera did, in fact, throw Hephaestus off the mountain but that wasn't because of Zeus' affairs. Hephaestus is Hera's own child and she threw him because he wasn't exactly handsome. At least that's what Homer says. :)

Hera is my most favorite Greek Goddess, I admire her more than Aphrodite or Athena. But Zeus was always so mean to her, and all she wanted was to be loved by him. She never cheated on him, no matter how many times he was unfaithful to her, no matter how many times he abused her and looked upon her. What’s so pathetic of Zeus is that when she leaves, he goes to great heights to win her back. He says he can’t live without her, yet he treats her like dirt. Poor Hera. If only they all could see, she was far greater than Zeus ever was.

I love the name Hera, but I'm not too fond of the English pronunciation. I love the German one, though: HEH-rah (long, German E in the first syllable). I considered this name a while ago for a future daughter, and I'd still use it as a middle name.

Hera is my grandmother's name and actually, she's mean and jealous like the ancient goddess. So name suits her well.

Before "HERR-ə" cropped up in America, the name was always pronounced "HEER-ə" in English.

I adore this name. It's so simple, yet so lovely. I would use this for a child.

And also, I believe the goddess Hera had a perfect right to be angry and cold. You would be, too, if you had a husband like Zeus.

Hera Agathon was a character in the SciFi show "Battlestar Galactica." Named after the goddess Hera, she was the child of Helo and Athena Agathon, and was the first human-Cylon hybrid. She ended up becoming Mitochondrial Eve.

In the United States, this is pronounced HEER-ah.

I love the name Hera, and I love Greek mythology. Hera is my favorite goddess.

I've never heard it pronounced heer-a in the US. I've always heard it pronounced and pronounce it myself as hair-a.
