Bono Name Meaning

Italian: from the personal name Bono meaning ‘good’, from the Latin personal name Bonus, which was borne by a minor 3rd-century Christian saint, martyred at Rome with eleven companions under the Emperor Vespasian. It was adopted as a personal name partly in his honor and partly because of the transparently well-omened meaning. Italian: nickname from b(u)ono ‘good’ (Latin bonus). Hungarian (Bonó): from a pet form of the personal name Bonifác (see Bonifacio).
