Iago is the name of the famous antagonist in Shakespeare's play, Othello.

I love this name, but the Othello association is quite strong. As Iago is a villainous character, the name bears bad connotations. Still, I think it can work well as a middle name.

In Spain it's written Yago with an y not an i.

Well, I would rather not use the name of a Shakespearean villain, as that is the association people will have.

Yes, but Iago is an extremely smart, clever villan.

I love this name, but I concede that it would be much too hard to get around the popular associations people have with this name. I'd never give it to a kid.

It is a pretty cool name, but it unfortunately reminds me of the Othello character, as well as the parrot from Aladdin.

This name is also commonly used in Georgia - it was probably introduced to the country via Shakespeare's famous play "Othello".

In Georgian, Iago is written as: იაგო.

A known bearer of this name is Georgian artist Iago Dekanozishvili (b. 1951).

It's a strong and wonderful name. It reminds me Iago from "Othello". The form that I prefer is Jago (Jaygo). All of them are cognates of my wonderful name: Jacob.
