Good name for a dog but stupid for a human.
No, this is brand name.
Man, everyone upset that trans people like dis name eh?
Well hello! I’m Milo and I’m non-binary, this name has been a name I’ve always adored- way before I came out.

I feel like this name can work both on a boy or a girl, or anyone really! It’s so sweet sounding.
Milo is a thinker. A little elf named Milo who tinkers and creates would be a great character for a novel.
I love the name Milo, and might use it for a son one day. It’s a nice, short name to go with our long last name.
Sounds better as a cat name (because of Milo and Otis).
I love this name so much. It is similar to Mila, which I love, and is, too the adjective for "dear" in several Slavic languages. We chose this name for our first born and have never regretted it once. So special and pretty.
This seems like a total dog name.
I think Milo is a good name depending on the person. A kid in my class when I was in 4th grade was named Milo and he was nice but also too sucked up in The Mandalorian.
мыло means soap.
Milo Manheim, actor who played one of the leads in the Disney Channel movie Zombies. He played the love interest of the co-lead, Addison, the human.
Wow, so many trans guys! I can see why they like this name. It's nice and not rough like Brad or something.
This is actually my name! I'm named after Milo the cat from Milo and Otis. It has always been a favorite movie of mine. (also to every trans boy using this name, hi! I'm trans too. I know I'm gonna get a bunch of Karen's mad by saying that but eh, I don't care.)
I recently discovered this name pronounced mee - lo, and I love it! It's nice the other way, too, but wayyy too similar to my name, Maya.
All I can think of is the movie Milo and Otis.
I really like this name a lot and I can't really think of anything negative to say about the name Milo. :)
I love this name, and while Milo Yiannopoulos is dumb, I don't think of him when I hear this name and it is therefore not ruined for me.
Milo is the name of the Grass-type Gym Leader from Pokemon Sword and Shield.
“There was once a boy named Milo who didn’t know what to do with himself— not just sometimes, but always. When he was in school he longed to be out, and when he was out he longed to be in. On the way he thought about coming home, and coming home he thought about going. Wherever he was he wished he were somewhere else, and when he got there he wondered why he’d bothered. Nothing really interested him— least of all the things that should have. “It seems to me that almost everything is a waste of time, ” he remarked one day as he walked dejectedly home from school. “I can’t see the point in learning to solve useless problems, or subtracting turnips from turnips, or knowing where Ethiopia is or how to spell February.” And, since no one bothered to explain otherwise, he regarded the process of seeking knowledge as the greatest waste of time of all.”

-Norton Juster in The Phantom Tollbooth.
Hi! I'm a trans boy, and I've picked the name Milo. Why? It's simple, it's cute, it's perfect for a short boy like me! I overall think this is a great name and Milo Yannananana or whatever his name should be forgotten by now. If you're thinking about naming your baby boy Milo, I encourage you! It's super sweet and for a cute lil boy.
Yeah, I think it's better for a dog. Can't picture it on a human at all.
All I can think of is this name belongs on a dog... the dog from the mask and I think the cat in the movie Milo and Otis. Not a name I would think ages well for boy or girl past the age of 5. Also it seems quite a bit feminine to be taken seriously on a boy. I do like that it is unique though and don't see it much but I do see it on many dogs it is just like the name Max that is on every dog these days :/
Heyo. Fellow trans guy here.
First off, I hope you’re having a good day.
Okay, down to business. I hate that this “Milo Yiannopoulous” fellow is driving people to hate this name. My (Trans) name is Milo. I chose this name not because I agree with this other “Milo” dude. I hate him and what he thinks and believes. I chose this name because I ignored all of this. And I think that everyone else should too. Forget about the name and focus on the person. Do you hate me because my name is Milo? I sure hope not. That’s a pretty dumb move on your part. You don’t know me. I don’t know you. If you hate me, you have no valid reason. Don’t let one person's actions ruin a name that is owned by many people. Life is already hard enough.
Thank you for reading this, my fellow people.
Milo is a name that might work if a future parent desires a name that is simple and would be easy to pronounce for a child when he is growing up.
I actually used to like this name until I found out about Mr. Yiannopoulos. Now I can't see it without thinking of his hateful political views. I'd advise choosing something else.
Milo is the name of a chocolate drink, and a popular dog name, but the name Milo is really cute to me.
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.
Can't forget about Milo Stewart, unfortunately.
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.
My name is Milo. I'm an adult female! I have grown to LOVE my name, and I'm not ugly hipster trash!

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...
Milo Powell from Captain Flamingo.
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.

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 like it, but it seems a bit cutesy.
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!)
The main character in The Phanton Tollbooth is called Milo.

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.
This a really unflattering name, I picture a really feminine man.

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.
Milo James Thatch is the main character on Disney's movie "Atlantis: the Lost Empire."
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.
