I can't think about this name without imagining a little boy running about wreaking havoc. It just sounds like an immature name.

I love Italian Chef Fabio Viviani. He became a Food Network star and ventured out on his own, has a string of books and restaurants in the United States. This name screams Italy to me... and that isn't a bad thing. I've never met a Fabio in the United States, think it would blend in well with all the latinos we have here. It wouldn't be a strange name in L.A., Miami, Chicago, etc.. interesting name.

I think that it's highly unlikely that the kids at school will have any knowledge of Fabio, the famous Italian model. And so what if they did? The man is gorgeous and successful. I guess the only detraction people associate with him is that he is perceived to be the male version of a "dumb blond" or a Barbie doll. But, by the time your son is an adult, Fabio the model will be a forgotten character from our era. I'd chance it and give this lovely name to a boy. Especially if I was Italian and proud of my heritage. It's such a handsome name!

I like it because it's short, but I think that people who have got this name are often childish. It sounds good and in our country, it's very popular.

Fabio Testi is an Italian actor, star of, among many others, the film First Action Hero which, curiously, is not included in his official website's filmography. Born in Italy on August 2 of 1941, the 1.84m tall actor started his film career as a stuntman in his college years. His most famous job as a stuntman was in Sergio Leone's Once upon a time in the West, where he fell from a rooftop and hit the ground on his shoulder. In the 1970s, Fabio Testi became the subject of news items on account of his involvement with international superstar Ursula Andress. The relationship lasted three years, but ended when Testi decided he was too jealous a lover. Another romance found him in the arms of Charlotte Rampling but he would only marry in 1979, to Lola Navarro, with whom he fathered three children. Testi skirted international stardom through a series of unusual role choices and a firm decision to remain in Italy. He chose to work with people like Miles Deem, known as the "Ed Wood" of Spaghetti Westerns" when better roles were available.

In America, many of his movies saw a DVD release through Blue Underground studios, usually including a subtitled interview with the actor discussing the film at hand.

I read somewhere that Fabio was Spanish for "ruler", but I may be wrong.
