User comments for Danilo (Meaning / History Only)

The Serbian/Croatian name is not of the same origin as Daniel - it is derived from the word "dan" meaning "day" and suffix "-ilo" which is found in many Slavic names (and common nouns); Branilo, Borilo, Momčilo, Bajilo... It has been equated with Daniel because it looks and is pronounced similarly hence Daniel has been assimilated in it. Serbs/Croats have Danijel/Danijela which are derived from Daniel.
