This name is really pretty. I think it would really suit a cat.

Truly annoying that, instead of talking about the name, people choose to whine about how much they hate a mythological figure for doing similar things as the other characters in classical mythology.
Anyways, this name is really lovely, though I'm not too much of a fan of the English pronunciation.

Hera Bjork is an Icelandic singer who represented her country in 2010 Eurovision with the song "Je Ne Sais Quoi". She qualified for the semi final but did not crack the Top 10.

It's lovely and if it does mean "hero", that's great. But the original bearer, Hera, is a bad association. She is always dangerously jealous. Maybe if I had better associations, I would like this name more.

I personally think Hera was an amazing, underappreciated goddess and that “Hera” is a strong, beautiful name. I would be proud to have this name. She had every right to inflict those punishments on Zeus and his girls, after all he did promise he would be faithful to her.

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

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.

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.

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

The name of a beautiful Icelandic singer, Hera Björk, who entered the 2010 Eurovision.

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

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 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.

Hera Von La CincienaE'achritz was a famous nun in Germany during the Catholic Protestaunt War in Europe.

Hera was the wife of Zeus and notoriously jealous, especially of his 'lady friends' and successful children.
Surreal  12/25/2006
She was so mean - she threw Hephaestus off the mountain!
lcgirl20  7/10/2007
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. :)
LouisLovePower  11/10/2009
Yes, and she also went after Zeus's extra-marital children - including Hercules, the most admired hero in Greece.
FMRadio  7/29/2008
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.
