Teo is also *very* commonly used in the country of Georgia, where it is written as თეო. [noted -ed]

However, there is a small catch: the name is strictly feminine there, even though technically the etymology is exactly the same (!).

The name is both a variant of თეა (Tea) and a short form of feminine names that start with Teo-, such as თეოლინე (Teoline) and თეონა (Teona). In other words: the name is basically a short form of all feminine names that contain the Greek element θεός (theos) meaning "god".

You might also want to perform an exact search on Google with only the keywords "Teo" + "ge.linkedin", which will turn up all the Georgian bearers that have allowed for their LinkedIn account to be available on Google. The same principle applies to Facebook, although I would pair the name with that of a major Georgian city on there (such as "Tbilisi" or "Batumi"), lest the search results get too cluttered with non-Georgian bearers.
Also a nickname of Matteo in Italian.
I would name one of my sons this name. I personally love this name! I will use Teo Lucas, Teo Joesph, or Teo Ryan.
Teo Halm, an actor in the movie "Earth to Echo" bears the name.
I love Teo. Although I do like Theo as well, it sounds more lispy. I love that Teo doesn't have that problem. I believe it is a nice handsome, strong name.
TEH-o is the Croatian pronunciation. [noted -ed]
The Teo I met pronounced it Tay-oh.

I like this name.
Used for boys in Croatia, where it's a diminutive of Teodor (or also Mateo, but usually the former).
I love this name! It's so handsome, uncommon & a great alternative to Leo. While I dislike Theo, Teo is gorgeous! On its own, or as a nickname for other names such as Matteo, Teodor/e, etc.

Also, it could work on either gender, on a girl, it would be very cool, especially as a nickname for Teodora.
Also a boys name in Slovenia.
