Meaning:Wealth, prosperous
Othello is a boy's name of legendary status, remembered best as the tragic titular hero of Shakespeare's Othello. A compelling variant of the Old German Otto, Othello means "wealth" or "prosperity." It's a worthwhile meaning that places Othello's merits above his downfall at the hands of the villainous Iago. A skilled soldier and effective leader, Othello remains an alluring figure for his high achievements in the face of deep-seated prejudice. After all, one cannot fall without reaching great heights nor be bound by the mistakes of another, but rather find an opportunity to learn.
