Nimo

Nimo is the Italian form of Nemo which derives from Latin meaning “no one” or “nobody”, the Latin equivalent of Greek Outis (also meaning “no one”). Némō (νέμω) is also an Ancient Greek verb meaning “to deal out, distribute, dispense” derived from PIE root word *nem- (to distribute; to give, to take); the same root word from which Nemesis (the Greek goddess of retribution) comes from. It was the name used by French author Jules Verne for his character Captain Nemo (not his real name), a former Indian prince who lost his home and family in a mutiny against British imperialism and both meanings seem to fit quite well with the character.

Nimo is also a surname.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
