Not that Fiero's are trivial, but any mention is good in my book. Toward the bottom, they ask:

What does "Fiero" mean?

A. cruel
B. proud
C. wild
D. all the above

And they say "D." I never thought all of the above were true. Am I wrong, or should we take them to task for this?

I had never heard of the "Cruel" reference.....Here is straight from the Wikipedia Fiero entry; The word Fiero means "very proud", "fierce", "bold", "haughty" "cruel", "severe" in Italian, and "wild", "fierce", or "ferocious" in Spanish.

My spell check comes back Fire. No joke!

What many miss is there was a Firebird Fiero Aero show car in 1969

This was a aero version of the Firebird and was a show car for two years.

Fiero at that point was Fir for Firebird and ero for Aero concept this combined is Fiero.

I know the John Schinella story about the late night meeting and Finding randomly the Fiero name in the Italian Dictionary. What is interesting is the name was used before with a different meaning and was still a registered own name by Pontiac when it was found by chance. Or was it Chance?

Then also never came clean on the late change from Pegasus that I have ever seen clearly stated.
