Hélio is a boy’s name of Portuguese and Greek origin. Most commonly found in Brazil, it’s a Portuguese variant of Helios, the name of the personification of the sun in Greek mythology. This powerful sun god drove a chariot from east to west across the sky each day, lighting up the world for the mortals below. Another common variant of this sunshiney name is the Italian Elio. Whichever version you prefer, this name will be beautifully symbolic of all the light and warmth baby is going to bring into your life.
