Meaning & History
Form of AZZO. Adso da Melk is a fictional Medieval character in Umberto Eco masterpiece 'Il nome della rosa' (1980). That character is loosely based on a real person: the monk Adso de Montier-en-Der (910/915 – 992). In Italy this name is no longer used and known just for the character and as a Medieval name.
