  1. We picked a long list of names and waited till he was born to choose what fit him best. Names were both boy/girl as we waited till birth to found out the gender – but I had multiple dreams before he was conceived and during pregnancy that I knew he was a boy. After he was born around day 3 we chose Milo Septem Agape as his full name and it fits perfectly for who he is!

    Milo is German for peaceful and calm, which my partner and I are both German, which my Omi (grandmother in German) cried when she found out that was his name because she had a best friend growing up named Milo when she lived in Berlin who passed away as a young adult

    Septem for his middle name which means seven in Latin as he was born on 7/7 and his father and I are 7 years apart, also he was born at 3:22 am which equals 7 as well ? lol

    Agape is his last name which is Greek for universal love / empathetic love

    I can’t think of calling him anything else ?

  2. Milo was in a list we’d made and it just stuck. We get compliments on it all the time and currently there are only a few Milo’s in town. I’m sure that will change in a few years.

  3. I liked Milo from The Phantom Tollbooth, like the other commenters. I also read that an alternate meaning was “merciful”, and his middle name is Ari, which is Hebrew and means “lion” (it’s a family name), so his name means “merciful lion” which made us think of Aslan from Narnia.

  4. We love the band The Descendants and the singer is named Milo. But we also know the main character in the “Phantom Tolbooth” is named Milo as well. His middle name is Clash after the band. We love the name and it fits our little sweet and wild baby boy.

  5. Milo is the main character of a children’s book I loved, “The Phantom Tollbooth.” We chose the name because it is simple, easy to spell and unique without being super unusual/odd. We also liked that it sounds cute for a baby but is not too “cutesy” for a grown man! (See the very masculine, handsome Milo Ventimiglia!)
