Meaning:Of George, Giovanni; Farmer, earthworker
Gio is an Italian boy's name whose original roots come from the Greek name, Georgios. This traditional boy's name literally translates to "earth-worker" or "farmer," making it a great choice for a parent who wants their kid to keep their feet on the ground! It is the equivalent of John in English and is often, but not always, a shortened version of Giorgio or Giovanni. Much like a Giorgio Armani suit, the name Gio is subtle, timeless, and never goes out of style!
