Meaning:Man's defender
Alejo is a masculine name steeped in Spanish and Greek origins. Alejo comes from Alejandro, derived from the Greek Alexandros, meaning “man’s defender.” In Ancient Greece, Alexandros was a title reserved for the mighty in battle. It is also an epithet of the Greek goddess Hera, interpreted as “one who comes to save warriors.” Its Spanish counterpart, Alejandro, suggests romance and passion rather than war, having an artsy vibe if baby prefers the pen over the sword. Alejo offers the perfect solution for parents wanting something short and sweet—an endearing appellation for your little hero.
