Milo has long been a highly recommended author favorite, now getting some well deserved appreciation. Milo combines the strength of the ancient Greek Olympic wrestler of that name--a six time winner of the Olympic games-- with the debonair charm of a WW II RAF pilot. A well-used name in medieval Europe, it predates brother-name Miles, a variation that evolved when the name emigrated to the British Isles.

More recently, Milo has been associated with the dashing Milo Ventimiglia, of Heroes fame, and has also been a character in Catch-22 and The Phantom Tollbooth, on screen in Milo and Otis, Alias, and Atlantis: The Lost Empire.

Ricki Lake, Camryn Manheim, Sherry Stringfield, Liv Tyler and Alyssa Milano are five celebrity moms who share our enthusiasm for Milo, as do many nameberry baby namers.

Milo is often heard in Ireland. Milo O'Shea was a renowned Irish character actor.
