Aldo Leopold is a famous bearer of this name. He was a naturalist who lived from 1887 to 1948 and did significant work in Arizona, New Mexico, and Wisconsin. With his wife, Estella, and five children, Starker, Luna (boy), Nina, Carl, and Estella, Aldo Leopold undertook an ecological restoration project on the Wisconsin River, which involved planting thousands of trees and restoring prairies. His collection of essays, A Sand County Almanac, is considered one of the best books ever written on the environment and is still popular (having sold over 2 million copies) today.

I know this name, in fact, from Spanish. It sounds really tender.

Aldo Moro (September 23, 1916 – May 9, 1978) was an Italian politician and five time Prime Minister of Italy. He was one of Italy's longest-serving post-war Prime Ministers, holding power for a combined total of more than six years.

One of the most important leaders of Democrazia Cristiana (DC, English: Christian Democracy), Moro was considered an intellectual and an incredibly patient mediator, especially in the internal life of his party. Poised to become Prime Minister a sixth time, he was kidnapped by terrorists from the Red Brigades (BR) before he could assume office and killed in mysterious circumstances in May 1978.

I love this name, there is something classic and strong about it. It is also my brother's name, and my mother told me it meant 'older' in Italian. She speaks it very well, and I don't, so I don't know if it's true.

Six years have passed, but I still want to say regarding the comment of user "finnya" that Aldo does NOT mean "older" in italian. To say older in italian you need to say "più vecchio" (literarily "more old.") Although being a common name in Italy, Aldo doesn't have an actual meaning in Italian, beside being a name.

I don't mind this name if said as All-doh. Like "Waldo" without the "W"

"Al-doh" (this pronunciation) doesn't do much for me.
