Etymology & Historical Origin - Aldo
Aldo originated as an Italian, Spanish and Portuguese short form of any ancient Germanic name beginning with the “ald” element (meaning “old”), such as Aldebrand, Aldhard, and Aldric (the Norman-English masculine name Aldous developed in much the same way). Aldo hasn’t been a significantly popular name throughout the ages, but it is familiar and used primarily in Italy or among Spanish and Portuguese speakers. One notable name bearer was Aldo Leopold (1887-1948), an American naturalist and ecologist who had a profound impact on calling attention to the importance of biodiversity and is considered the founding father of wildlife management.
Popularity of the Name Aldo
Aldo first appeared on the American male naming charts in 1911, most likely influenced by the wave of Italian immigration which occurred a few decades earlier. The name grew mildly to levels of low moderation but then disappeared from the naming lexicon in 1934 for over 20 years. Aldo did not reemerge on the charts again until the mid-1950s and even then at very low levels of usage. For the next 40 years, Aldo hovered down toward the bottom of the list of boy’s names and was scarcely used. However, since the mid-1990s, Aldo is showing promise again. The name has returned to more moderate levels of usage, although it is still dispensed sparingly. Aldo is a cute little name that packs a lot of punch. It has a twinge of old-fashioned charm and a lot of Italian spunk.
