Meaning:God of war; gold
Oro is a masculine name of Pacific Islander origin, not to be underestimated. Rooted in Polynesian mythology, Oro is named for the war god of Tahiti, who crafted a rainbow path between the heavens and mortal ground. On this, he would descend in the guise of a young warrior to court Vairaumati, the daughter of the first man. Though ferocious in battle, during peaceful times, Oro would serve as the god of the arts—patron of the Tahitian cult Areoi. In Spanish, Oro also means "gold," which does little to dull the name's majestic appeal.
