If I could hear this without thinking of Nero (Milo Yiannopoulos) I would like it. He is literally both homophobic and homosexual (I support gay rights, but not the way he is about his blatant homophobia and the fact that he would be made straight if he could), and irritating as hell I would be okay with it. Now all I associate this with is alt right commentators.

Milo is an awesome name. It's classic, yet youthful. Despite its rather negative connotations in modern times, it's a pretty humble sounding name that will last well throughout the owner's life.

Just please don't spell it Mylo.

Hehe, if we can get past Mr. Yogurtopolis and chocolate milk, then I think we can see a really good name that sounds good on both a boy and a man. Like Oliver, actually.

I really love Milo, but Milo Yiannnopuolous or whatever makes me not want to use it.

Neo-Nazi Milo Yogurtopolis or whatever his name is has ruined this name for me. I think it's a sweet-sounding name but that connotation will always be there.

Milo Yiannopoulos, (b. 1983), Journalist and one of the greatest people ever. I like this name more because of him.

Milo Yiannopoulos has ruined this name for me. I used to like it, but now I can't separate it from him.

Here in Australia, Milo is a drink, so that puts the name Milo off limits. Miles/Myles would be a better choice.

I've never liked this name, even before the evil Milo Yiannopoulos was around. It sounds way too childish to be taken seriously.

I think it sounds really tacky, like the name of a cheap perfume, and of course there's the association with that racist, misogynistic jerk Milo Yiannopoulos. I bet a lot of the men using this name on their sons must be admirers of him.

I really like this name but for some reason I don't think it fits men over 30.

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...

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.

Two Milos I remember from fiction:
The cat from the film "Milo and Otis".
The dog from "The Mask" and its spin-off animated series.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

The name Milo is cool, you don't hear it as a person's name here in Australia (because it's a drink!)

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
