A pretty modest choice, Modesto is found in Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese as a descendant of the Latin mŏdestus. This masculine name may be chosen in the hope of keeping baby grounded, with its meanings “moderate,” “reasonable,” and “restrained.” The saying “everything in moderation” is made brighter and wiser when aligned with “variety is the spice of life.” Perhaps Modesto will inspire your little one to walk a balanced and fruitful path with their feet firmly on the ground.
