The Best Superhero Names For Your Superbaby


Superhero: Wonder Woman

Alter ego: Diana Prince

Meaning “heavenly divine”, and also, Roman lunar goddess—double whammy!


Superhero: Superman

Alter ego: Clark Kent

Meaning “scholar” (of course), this name, as well as Kent, is a good choice for emphasising that brains and brawn can work together.


Superhero: Zorro

Alter ego: Don Diego de la Vega

The masked crusader, Diego can be a name that highlights the modesty of a true hero. Also, the swashbuckling skills are pretty impressive.


Superhero: Harley Quinn

Alter ego: Harleen Frances Quinzel

An atypical character with plenty of sass and smarts, Harley can be a good fit if you’re looking for a wildcard name that embodies the unconventional.


Superhero: Marvel Girl

Alter ego: Jean Grey

Originally a superheroine name, Grey is a gorgeous unisex option.


Superhero: Poison Ivy

Alter ego: Pamela Lillian Isley

Botanist-turned-badass, this enduring Batman adversary is a symbol of uber-feminine prowess.


Superhero: The Flash

Alter ego: Jay Garrick

Evoking the speedy ways inherent in most little dudes, Jay also means “to rejoice”.


Superhero: Superwoman

Alter Ego: Kara Zor-El

Meaning “beloved”, what more fitting name for your precious bundle?


Superhero: Lex Luthor

Alter ego: Alexander Joseph Luthor

Lex may have been Superman’s nemesis, but his name actually means “defender of men”. And anyway—who says Superman is top dog, anyway?


Superhero: Wolverine

Alter ego: James Howlett; Logan; Weapon X

One of the all-time hero faves, this name can’t help but conjure ideas of brute strength and unerring loyalty.


Superhero: Loki

Alter ego: Loki Laufeyson

The counterpoint to golden boy Thor, this choice is great for folks who don’t mind a little mischief in their lives (and little ones).


Superhero: Mystique

Alter ego: Raven Darkholme

A brooding, highly intelligent bird, this avian name is an avatar for pride—and supreme adaptability, in the Marvel-verse.


Superhero: Thor

Alter ego: God of Thunder

From Norse legend, this hammer-wielding god of thunder packs more power than almost any name under Valhalla.
