Gio is an Italian and Georgian boy's name whose original roots come from the Greek name Georgios and Giorgi. 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's also the Italian equivalent of John, shorted from Giovanni, inspired by the Hebrew Yehochanan, meaning "God is gracious." Much like a Giorgio Armani suit, the name Gio is subtle, timeless, and never goes out of style!
