Mateo is the Spanish form of Matthew, a biblical name, a saint’s name and the name of one of the 12 apostles in the New Testament. Before Matthew became an apostle (and the patron saint of bankers and accountants), he was called Levi. Mateo comes with the stylish nickname Teo and the variations Matteo, Matias and Matthias. Mateo has made a dramatic climb in popularity since 1992, and though slowing down, it shows no signs of stopping. International soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo named one of his twins Mateo in 2017.
