Vito is the Italian and Spanish form of Vitus, an Ancient Roman name meaning “life” derived from Latin vita (life, living) from a PIE root word. Vito is also an Italian surname derived from the given name. Apparently it’s been confused with Ancient Germanic Wido which comes from an Ancient Germanic element witu “wood” or wid “wide”.
