If you were alive during medieval times, you’d be very familiar with this name, which is the Old Germanic form of Miles, derived from the Latin word for “soldier.” After falling off the popularity charts in the 20th century, the name has rebounded. Heartthrob “This Is Us” actor Milo Ventimiglia has given it a decidedly cool factor, and lots of Hollywood children have the name too, including the sons of Liv Tyler, Alyssa Milano and Craig Ferguson.

As a cartographer and linguist, Milo Thatch from “Atlantis: The Lost Empire” is a key crew member in a group of adventurers who set out to find Atlantis. Some people think “the lost city” is a myth, but Milo was a true believer, as was his grandfather. The mild-mannered intellectual has been working at the Smithsonian Institute when the opportunity to fulfill his life’s dream comes up. Milo is friendly but socially awkward, and through his determination to find and restore Atlantis to its former glory, Milo becomes a true hero (not to mention a prince, too, since he marries Queen Kida along the way).
