This name has a certain vitality that I appreciate by the way it is spelled and sounds. I also think it is a decent
choice of a name for a family who might have relations that are from, let’s say a more continental extraction in Western Europe. Making it easier to pronounce and spell for such relatives would be a significant bonus in my humble opinion. Thus making Hugo a charming and multi cultural forename that might be right for the family that selects this name for a child of theirs.

Hugo is the name of the villainous ventriloquist's dummy in the marvelous old horror movie Dead of Night. (That is, the dummy is villainous -- or is the ventriloquist mad?)

Nice name. I knew a little boy named Hugo and he pronounced it HUGH-go, which is the usual pronunciation in the US. It's never been very popular here and it's nice that way, because then the people named Hugo are unique :) I highly recommend using it, it's very cute and quirky but will suit all ages.

I've noticed that this seems to be a somewhat popular name for babies here in France right now. It's pronounced, 'you-go' in French, with no 'h' sound.

I think this is an awesome and sophisticated boy's name. I used to know a guy with this name who was very hansome yet very melancholy and mysterious. That's the only thing that would put me off calling a male child Hugo.

To my knowledge (and it happens to be my name) the name Hugo originates from the Greek, and means "Thinker" or "Philosopher". In European countries like Switzerland, April 1st would be the name day.
