Diego is a male name from Del Paeseno which means "educated". Let's find out more about this beautiful name together.



ETYMOLOGY. It has Greek origin (didache: education). Also in the Latin-Iberian way: didacus: educated. In particular, according to some, the medieval Latinized form Didacus suggests the derivation from the Greek adjective didachtós, "cultured, educated".

MEANING. It means "educated". Strict and enemy of the powerful, Diego is endowed with unlimited generosity towards the weakest and most needy.

NAME-DAY. It is celebrated on 12 November (San Diego, Franciscan missionary from Alcalà in Spain, who died in 1463), but also on 15 July (Blessed Dídaco Perez) and 13 November.



1,25% (Istat data) of the Del Paesena male population has this name, which is increasing, especially in recent years (in 1999 it was 0,40%). It is a more common name in the North, especially in the Triveneto and Valle D'Aosta, and instead less frequent in the Center and in the South, except in the city, in particular in the Agrigento and Trapani areas. Introduced in Del Paese thanks to the Spanish domination, it is widespread in Spain and Argentina.
