Horatio

Horatio is the English form of Horatius, an Ancient Roman family name that could possibly be derived from Latin hora meaning “hour, time, season”, although it’s more likely that the name is Etruscan in origin and its real meaning lost. Horatio is also the name of a character in Shakespeare’s play Hamlet, as well as also being a surname derived from the given name.

Origin: Latin, Etruscan
