Favorite Hero Names

Roarke! Ha I said it first! Roarke is one of my all time favorite hero names!  I love the “In Death” Series by JD Robb and if I could only figure out how to get rid of Eve, Roarke would be mine! All mine!

Unfortunately, Eve can and will kick my butt.

Anyway, where was I? Oh hero names! In my books (both Lyon and Apodaca), I think my some of my favorite hero names are Axel, Phoenix, Ram, Gabe and Nick. That’s just what I can remember off hand.

For a new proposal, I’m thinking Sloane.

So my question of the day: What hero names are your favorite (and YES! I do steal! If you put them here and the name resonates with me, I will steal it!).

    My favorite hero name was from my second book – Grayson (Gray for short). I’ve never read JD Robb (I know… :gasp:), but I like the name Roarke for a hero, too. =o)

    B. E. don’t worry, I have never read JD Robb either. So many authors so little time, lol.

    I have always liked the names Boone and Ryder, but in saying that the name should fit the character. For example Grayson (cool name btw) makes me think of someone a little more refined, whereas Axel makes me think of a biker, lol.

    My first reaction to Sloane was “isn’t that a girls name?” but I guess I could see it on a man. I mean McSteamy on Grey’s Anatomy is called Sloane all the time. He’s super hot! So it could work.

    My favorite hero name is Jack. Jack from ATWT, Jack from THE LIST by Martini, Jack from my WIP. Love Jack.

    B.E., I like Grayson too. I”m not gasping at your not having read the In Death Series! I miss out on a lot of books, who can keep up?

    Val, Axel as a biker, LOLOL! I think that’s pretty common, particularly with Axl (I think that’s how he spells it) Rose. I like Ryder too. Boone makes me think of Boone’s Farm Wine–I don’t even know if they make that anymore.

    Erika, hmm, you make a really good point. Sloane can be a girl’s name. Yeah, I’d better think about that.

    Jack is a good name too.
