Bello Name Meaning
Spanish and Italian: from bello ‘handsome’ (Late Latin bellus), hence a nickname for a handsome man or perhaps in some instances ironically for an ugly one. In medieval Italy the word was also applied as a personal name, which also gave rise to the surname. Catalan (Belló): variant of Abelló (see Abello). Galician: variant of Vello, from a personal name which is either a variant of Vela or a derivative of Latin vetulus, a diminutive of vetus ‘old’.
