"My son's name is Theron and we love it! My father had a hard time pronouncing it at first. I keep telling people that it rhymes with Aaron. Most people think that his name is "Farren" when I say it aloud. It's a beautiful, fitting, strong name for our little 1 year old. I'd never change it for the world." Jul. 19, 2017:
"My son is named Theron, and people often think it's Darren or Aaron. He is used to spelling it for strangers, and we often say like Charlize Theron. I knew a boy in first grade with the name and wanted it for my son, I've never heard the name again. We live in Kentucky." Jun. 18, 2017:

"My name is Theron, and I pronounce it
Thee-ron. Well I was told by a College Professor(Humanities), that in ancient Greece(for males only), after the age of 32, you changed the pronunciation of your name. This symbolized maturity(from boy to man). So, I was told from birth to 32yrs old, it is pronounced THAIR-ran. After the age of 32, it is pronounced, THEE-ron." Aug. 26, 2009:
"I am a woman named Theron, born 1982 in California. So there's one girl for your 9,767 boys that you can add to your graph. Potnia Theron is the Minoan or Archaic Greek equivalent of Artemis (aka Diana), goddess of the hunt." Feb. 3, 2009:
