Origin:Latin
Meaning:Follower of Christ
Christo is a boy’s name of Greek and Latin origins, meaning “follower of Christ.” A unique and preppy choice, Christo comes from the more commonly-known Christian, but more subtly harkens to parents’ religious faith. The name is believed to derive from the Greek “Christos,” meaning “anointed,” and was a name given to Jesus by early Greek-speaking Christians. Christo is also a translation of the Hebrew word “Messiah,” blessing baby with an angelic etymology that’s survived the ages.
