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.
