Indio

Names Throughout the Ages

Indio seems to be either a male form of India, the name of a country in South Asia; the name comes from Sanskrit Sindhu meaning “river, stream; flood, waters; sea, ocean”. I’ve also seen it listed as a variant form of Indigo, the color of a purplish-blue color. The word comes from Ancient Greek indikon meaning “of India” or “Indian dye” in reference to the dye extracted from plants and exported from India to the Ancient Greeks and Romans. Indio is also a Spanish, Galician, and Portuguese word meaning “Indian”.

Origin: Sanskrit
