Colombo Family History
Colombo Name Meaning
Italian: from the personal name Colombo, from Latin Colombus, Colomba meaning ‘dove’, a personal name favored by early Christians because the dove was considered to be the symbol of the Holy Spirit. In some cases the name may have arisen as a nickname for a gentle, mild-mannered person, or as a metonymic occupational name for a keeper of doves (Latin columbus ‘dove’).
