Meaning:Battle; Battle soul; Saved from battle
Gonzalo is a scrappy Spanish boy's name with combat at its core. Derived from the Latinised Gothic name Gundisalvus, Gonzalo takes its meaning from the Germanic element gunþi, "battle." Yet warfare is only one part of the puzzle, for Gundisalvus also bears a mysterious secondary element open to many interpretations. Some suggestions include the Gothic element saiwala, meaning "soul," the German alb, "elf," or even the Latin word salvus, "save." Whether boasting a fighting spirit or a conflict-proof persona, Gonzalo is a decidedly disarming name for any burgeoning youth.
