Neo is a modern, ahead-of-its-time boy’s name. With Greek origins, this name is derived from the prefix neo or neos, meaning “new.” Often used as a prefix in medical books and the like—for example, neonate!—this name is also a wonderfully unique option for your latest addition. Most famously, this contemporary moniker is shared by the futuristic hero of the sci-fi franchise The Matrix, played by the ever-cool Keanu Reeves. And just like in the film, the name Neo (which is an anagram of ‘one’) will work perfectly for the new number one in your life.
