"pleasing, beloved, dear"

Graziano Origin and Meaning

The name Graziano is a boy's name of Italian origin meaning "pleasing, beloved, dear".

Italian form of Gratian, the name of a Roman emperor who campaigned across the Rhine and favored Christianity over paganism. Graziano isn't common either in the English-speaking world or its native Italy, although the boxer Rocky Graziano adopted it from his grandfather's surname. In the current vogue for names ending in -o and Italian names, it may be worth a second look.
