This is the Spanish, Portuguese and Italian version of the Latin Aemilius, which was a distinguished surname in Roman times. If you were French, you’d call your son Émile, and if you were Scandinavian, your boy would be Emil. In the US, Emilio plays second fiddle to Emiliano, but Emilio has been on the baby-name charts longer. Scoring a home run with his name is the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Emilio Bonifacio.
