Meaning:Good, skillful; Courageous; Wild
Bravo is a boy’s name of Italian and Spanish origin, and is also a Spanish surname. It most likely derives from a combination of the Latin words pravus (bad, improper) and barbarus (brutal). The name was given to a type of hired assassin in Italy in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In modern Italian, however, it means “good, skillful,” and is shouted out by audiences as a way to applaud performers. In Spanish, it has the same meaning, but can also mean “angry,” “wild,” or “courageous.” With a name like this one, baby will feel they’re being applauded every time you call for them! What better way to show your support and encouragement for everything they do?
