    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: Italian Salvatore, Rocco, Angelo, Antonio, Domenic, Carlo, Carmine, Enrico, Santo, Silvano, Dante.

    Italian: from the personal name Romeo, which derives ultimately from the classical Greek adjective rhōmaios (modern Greek romeos), originally denoting someone from the eastern Roman Empire, i.e. Byzantium, later someone from Rome itself, in particular someone who had been on a pilgrimage there, and finally someone who had made any pilgrimage, i.e. a pilgrim; from this last sense arose the personal name.
