Alo Name Meaning
Italian (Alò): perhaps from an Italian adaption of the Catalan personal name Eloi, equivalent of Italian Eligio, from French Eloy. The cult of St Eligio, patron of horses and blacksmiths, was very popular in the Middle Ages. Alternatively, the family name could be from Greek alós ‘prisoners’, ‘captives’. Spanish: unexplained. Samoan and Hawaiian: unexplained.
