Myron is the name of a 1974 novel by Gore Vidal. It was written as a sequel to his 1968 bestseller Myra Breckinridge. The novel was published shortly after an anti-pornography ruling by the Supreme Court; Vidal responded by replacing the profanity in his novel with the names of the Justices involved (e.g., "He thrust his enormous Rehnquist deep within her Whizzer White", etc.)
Myron is a masculine given name used in English-speaking and Eastern European countries including Romania, Ukraine and Russia (in the former USSR it is usually spelled Miron). Non-religious or Christianized Jews used this name as a Gentile replacement of the Jewish name Meir. This use was originally in honor of the ancient Greek sculptor Myron (Greek Μύρων), whose name meant "myrrh, perfume" in ancient Greek. Myron was fairly popular as a male given name in the United States during the early part of the 20th century. The popularity of the name declined during the 1960s and it is very rare today to see young people with the name Myron. The female equivalent of Myron is considered to be Myra.
