The name "Nero" was actually an ancient Sabine name that meant "strong and energetic", and was absorbed into Latin after the Romans conquered central Italy in 290 BCE.

The most famous bearer of this name would definitely be Nero, the Roman emperor. I don't know why anybody would ever use this name, considering how he burned the entire city of Rome down.

I was told by my French teacher that Nero, along with César, are popular dogs' names in France, like Rover is here.

Nero was a pretty horrible ruler, and as a result this name is not used in Italy. Or anywhere else in Europe, for that matter.

This name sounds cool and mysterious for a guy and makes a person sound quite intriguing in my opinion.

I don't know why you would want to name your kid after a Roman dictator, but hey, it's your choice.
