Famous Bearer
Personal Impression

(click a heading above to filter the comments by that type)

To my knowledge (and it happens to be my name) the name Hugo originates from the Greek, and means "Thinker" or "Philosopher". In European countries like Switzerland, April 1st would be the name day.

I think this is an awesome and sophisticated boy's name. I used to know a guy with this name who was very hansome yet very melancholy and mysterious. That's the only thing that would put me off calling a male child Hugo.

Dutch pronunciation is HUY-kho (sounds like ue in the French "rue" and kh is pronounced like ch in the Scottish "loch"). [noted -ed]

Famous bearer of this name is Hugo Laurie, the actor who plays Dr. House from the Fox tv series "House".

I like this name. To correct the person who said the actor from "House" was named HUGO Laurie, his name is actually HUGH Laurie.

I actually HATE this ugly name. :)

I've noticed that this seems to be a somewhat popular name for babies here in France right now. It's pronounced, 'you-go' in French, with no 'h' sound.

As an answer to leananshae 9/28/2012
The French pronunciation is not YOU-go. It is UY-go.
Fleurdelys  6/11/2014
Nice name. I knew a little boy named Hugo and he pronounced it HUGH-go, which is the usual pronunciation in the US. It's never been very popular here and it's nice that way, because then the people named Hugo are unique :) I highly recommend using it, it's very cute and quirky but will suit all ages.

Hugo is the name of the villainous ventriloquist's dummy in the marvelous old horror movie Dead of Night. (That is, the dummy is villainous -- or is the ventriloquist mad?)

I love this name, however I don't think it ages well at all.

I personally like this name very much. It sounds quite sexy, and the way it rolls from the tongue and sounds is amazing... I'll definitely name my son 'Hugo'.
