Other Origin(s):Hebrew
Loaded with villainous connotations, Iago is a boy's name unsuited to the faint of heart. A Welsh variation of the Latin Iacomus, Iago is rooted in the Hebrew Jacob, which means "supplanter." It's a poetic twist to one of Shakespeare's most cunning antagonists, whose treacherous schemes to replace the great general Othello was fueled by gnawing envy. Needless to say, Baby Iago is destined to turn eyes and pique interests in every room they grace.
