Meaning:Supplanter, holder of the heel
Thiago is a boy's name of Brazilian origin, meaning "supplanter." A dashing diminutive of Santiago, which hails from the Hebrew name Jacob, meaning “holder of the heel,” the “T”-sounding Thiago might be the perfect fit for parents preparing for their firstborn. While the name Thiago holds close ties to the Christian Bible, it’s also a moniker that’s made headlines in the football world. Parents with a particular passion for Lionel Messi will take pride in Thiago, too, knowing they’ve named their mini-medalist after one of the members of the Messi-Roccuzzo family.
