Other Origin(s):Italian, Portuguese, Spanish
Meaning:Work ruler; Home ruler
Found mostly in the Portuguese and Spanish-speaking parts of the world, Americo is a boy’s name that’s garnered less hype than its variant—America. The German words amal and ric make up this moniker and can be read as “work ruler” or “home ruler.” And since the United States was founded on the principle of home rule, the country has gone on to adopt the name for itself. In addition to this trivia, there are a number of personalities throughout the centuries, across walks of life, bearing this good name. So to name your little one Americo is to let them know they are not alone, that when they stand, they stand as ten thousand.
