Is this name hideous?

So I pretty much have a name picked out for my daughter, but I still love the name Hera (Zeus's wife in Greek mythology). It's pronounced Hair-a. Is it hideous? Be honest.

  • It's not my tastes, but it's not horrid.

    It would probably grow on me if I knew someone with that name, just like every other single name I've heard prior to meeting the person it was bestowed on.

  • I can appreciate that it's interesting and unique and I love mythology, but I'm just not sure I like the way it sounds. I don't think it's terrible, but it would take some getting used to.

  • I like it a lot!! Think or it as Cara, just with an "h", unique names are wonderful! I know someone who jsut named their son "Atlas", quite unique!

  • I'm not a mythology buff, but the name isn't hideous. Who knows? It might even be something of a conversation starter. :)
