Mateo is a Baby Boy Name

Find out the meaning behind the name Mateo.

The name Mateo is a boy's name of Spanish, Italian, Latin origin meaning "gift of God". Mateo is the Spanish form of Matthew, which derived from the Hebrew name Mattiyahu, consisting of the elements mattan, meaning “gift” and yah, which references the Hebrew God. Mateo can also be spelled Matteo, which is the Italian variation. Matheo is an archaic Spanish spelling, although it is used in France as Mathéo. This attractively energetic Spanish version of the classic Matthew is primed to move further and further into mainstream American nomenclature; it entered the Top 100 for the first time in 2015 and is one of the most popular Spanish names for boys in several countries, including the US. Actor Colin Firth has a son called Matteo, the Italian form; the Benjamin Bratts have a Mateo.
