Meaning:Mind, intellect
When thinking about your little one, you no doubt hope that their gorgeous brain will help them take on the world. Knowledge and intelligence are both admirable qualities to possess, so why not remind them of their natural smarts. The French boys name Hugo means “mind” and “intellect.” In the film Hugo, we see this charming name in action as the young boy with the same name, played by Asa Butterfield, has a strong intellect for clocks and automation. Another place you might’ve heard this name is from the high-end designer brand Hugo Boss.
