Thanks to the father of astronomy, Galileo Galilei, Galileo is a name forever written in the stars. Derived from the Latin Galilaeus, meaning “of Galilee,” it refers to someone from Galilee, a region of biblical significance. It may even have been in reference to Christ and his followers. So you can underline the importance of faith in your life by choosing this moniker for baby. It’s also poetic in a way, because just like how Galileo’s discoveries changed the world, your little one’s debut is set to tilt yours on its axis.
