Coco is a gender-neutral name of French origin with Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian roots. This name is a reference to the chocolate bean, translating to “cocoa.” Along with the sweet confection, Coco can also be a French term meaning "darling," always reminding your little one of how much you mean to them. This short, sweet name also has links throughout Europe, with meanings including "cook," "help," "palm tree," and "smiling face" to inspire your little one. While popularized as a nickname, it has since cemented its place as a chic, timeless given name that is sure to set a fashionable impression.
