Comments for MILO:

I like the name even though Milo is a popular chocolate flavoured drink in Australia. Milo has also branched out to chocolate bars and cereal too now. I love chocolate, so it's a good connection.

I used to think Milo was a cool name, then this baby's show called the tweenies came out and one of the things on it was called Milo. He's purple and loud and scary, and he breaks into song all the time and dances like he's got his big toe caught in an electrical socket. It kind of put me off the name.

According to "A World of Baby Names," Milo is of uncertain derivation. Might be from the German mild: "mild/peaceful/calm;" or from the Old German root milan: "to mill, beat, crush, or rub until fine or tender." Could also be from the Old Slavonic root milu: "merciful."

I love the name Milo. It was the name of the lead singer of the Descendants - a favorite of mine in the grunge era. :) I also had a blind cat who's name was Milo (before the animated movie came out). My husband thinks it sounds like a pet name, so I doubt if I can sway him. I think it would be a nice nickname for Myles, but I think Myles/Miles is getting pretty popular.

I love this name! It sounds so cute for a little boy and it is very attractive for a grown man. Love it!
-- elysa  3/14/2007
This a really unflattering name, I picture a really feminine man.
-- stuckonstupid  4/12/2007
I like the name, BUT as the first person who comments said, it would never be acceptable in Australia/New Zealand because of the drink.
-- pinkmoon_lj  10/1/2007
This is also used in France, but pronounced MI-lo.

The name Milo is cool, you don't hear it as a person's name here in Australia (because it's a drink!)
-- xNicolex  1/23/2008
I think this is a tremendously cute name for a boy, but I'm not quite sure how well it's going to suit a grown man. At least it ends in 'o', so it's clearly masculine and not infantile in the same way as names ending in -ey might be. I like the sound of this name by all means, but I'm afraid it'll be very popular.
-- slight night shiver  4/30/2008
I like it, but it seems a bit cutesy.

According to this website, this name is from the name Miles. But according to the information for Miles, it is from the Germanic name Milo, which is of uncertain origin. It may be from the Latin miles, meaning soldier, or a Germanic element meaning gracious, or it could even be a diminuative of Michael. I like the meaning gracious best, and I think Milo is more unique and attractive than Miles, which sound way to formal for me.

Brings to mind the character from the children's book "The Phantom Tollbooth", which is probably why I picture Milo to be a young boy. But I definitely think it could also be suited to an adult man.
It's a lovely name - simple but unusual, and a bit mysterious.

Milo Cawthorne is a New Zealand actor who has been in Power Rangers: RPM and a few stage-plays.
But instead of his name being said as 'MY-low' his name is actually pronounced 'Mee-low'

I think 'Mee-low' sounds quite classy and unique.

Love this name, it's very adorable. :D I'm not sure how well it ages though.

Gerard Butler made the name Milo very hot in "The Bounty Hunter". Proof that a very masculine man can pull it off!

-- GoodNightingale  9/23/2013
I really like this name. It sounds unique and cute, but because one of my pugs is named Milo, I can't exactly imagine it as a name for a grown man. But I think it would be great as a childhood nickname.

Milo Powell from Captain Flamingo.

Milo was the first name of the president of the college I attended. He has since passed away. It is a Bible College and he was a very good man and leader as far as I know.

I really like this name. I really like it's meaning "merciful". Another site listed "merciful or soldier" as possible meanings. I kind of like the irony and depth of the two of those meanings being what you might not think of as going together...
