I think of either the shoe store Aldo, or just a very cool popular late-teens guy who is universally liked and has an appealing laid-back personality. Aldo's definitely an underused gem of a name, especially with its appealing aesthetic and with -o names being all the rage lately; would make a great, inspired choice for a baby boy.
