Baby Names For Your Super Little Heroes

Superheroes come in all shapes and sizes - including your little bundle of joy!

If you are on the prowl for a unique and kick-ass name for your new arrival, here are some baby name superhero suggestions that could be perfect for the newest addition to your family.

These baby names may be cute and powerful, but we can't guarantee that they'll turn into the next Captain Marvel or Superman - their destiny is in their own hands!

  • Bran: Bran Stark is one of the main characters from the fantasy TV series Game of Thrones who went on a perilous journey to discover his untapped powers. "Bran" is of Gaelic origin, meaning a "bramble or a thicket of wild gorse".
  • Daphne: One of the founding members of The Scooby gang, Daphne Blake has been on our screens for over 50 years. Her name and style sense is timeless, we're sure you'll agree.
  • Emmy: The Umbrella Academy is a relatively new franchise on Netflix. Actor Emmy Raver-Lampman, who plays Allison in the series, is a beautiful name that means "hardworking" in French.
  • Gordon: Why not travel back to the '80s for your baby name superhero? Based on the 1930's sci-fi serial, Flash Gordon is the hero of the space opera epic, and Gordon could make for a cute name for a little boy or girl.
  • Kal: Which superhero is named Kal? Well, technically Clark Kent AKA Superman's real name is Kal-El because he was born on the fictional planet Krypton. It makes for a strong boy's name, which you could change to "Cal" too.
