Timoteo Origin and Meaning

The name Timoteo is a boy's name of Spanish origin meaning "honoring God".

Timoteo put some bounce in the step of the somewhat wispy Timothy. And it can be a more original way than Mateo to the cool short form Teo.

Italians emphasize the second syllable -- tee-MO-tay-oh -- while Spanish speakers put the emphasis on the third and say tee-mo-TAY-oh.
