Diogo Origin and Meaning

The name Diogo is boy's name of Portuguese origin meaning "supplanter".
Diogo is the much-less-known brother of Diego, both forms of James, which is itself a form of the Biblical Jacob. And Diego itself probably started life as a short form of Santiago, aka Saint Jago, aka Saint James.

That's a lot of variations for one name. In Diogo's case, Americans will forever mistake it for Diego, which was used for nearly 3000 baby boys in the US last year, while Diogo was given to fewer than five.
