Monte Origin and Meaning

The name Monte is a boy's name meaning "man power; mountain".

Monte, pronounced with two syllables as brother Monty, is an old-fashioned nickname-name that's reclaiming a certain amount of dash and charm. It was recently chosen by actor Guy Pearce--which may signal a comeback.

Alternatively, it comes from the Spanish and Italian word for mountain and therefore has a direct nature link. Popular in Armenia, it could work as an alternative for Dante.
