Alonzo is a masculine name of Spanish and German origins. The name means "noble" and "ready for battle" and became very popular in the late 1800s among Spanish homes. Disney and puppy-lovers alike might recall Alonzo as Cruella De Vil's former butler in "101 Dalmations". The character displays mighty courage to do what's right even though the consequences of doing so may be far more significant. Literary buffs may also recognise Alonso in Shakespeare's "The Tempest"; a good and just king who repents his past mistakes. With a name like Alonzo, baby has the courage to forge their own path and choose between right and wrong without being led astray.
