Indio Origin and Meaning

The name Indio is a boy's name meaning "Indian".

This name of a California desert town, used by Deborah Falconer and Robert Downey, Jr. for their son, makes a much livelier and more individual--not to mention more masculine-- improvisation on the themes of India and Indiana.

The similar sounding color name Indigo is unisex, but tending more to the girls--it was used by Lou Diamond Phillips for his daughter, as well as the group The Indigo Girls, but its o-ending makes it boy-friendly too.
