Other Origin(s):Latin
Meaning:Life, alive
Celebrate the newest little life in your family, and name your baby boy Vito. Meaning “life” or “alive,” this unique Italian boy’s name has fallen out of fashion in recent years. But, it is primed to make a resurrection—if you will. Derived from the Latin word vita, Vito is a modern version of the name Vitus, which you might recognize as the name of the patron saint of dogs in Italian folklore. Most famously, however, this name is shared with the godfather himself, Vito Corleone. Baby certainly won't be refusing this name anytime soon!
