Héri or Heri is a male given name.

In the Faroe Islands, Héri appears in the Flateyjarbók, a history written around 1380, in which Heri Sigmundsson is the youngest son of Sigmundur Brestisson. Heri is a common name in the Faroes today, probably not surviving as a traditional name, but revived and put into use again in later times from historical accounts like Flateyjarbók. Héri may mean " hare" ( lepus europaeus), for which the modern Icelandic name is Héri. Alternatively, Héri may be an abbreviation of Norse names beginning with Her-, like Herálfur, Herleifur, or Hergeir.
