Comments by Diego


Diego (31 years old) 2012-11-10
Diego is a Spanish male name derived from the Hebrew Yaʻăqōbh (Jacob).
Diego is a very popular name in the Spanish-speaking world.
Diego was translated into Latin as "Didacus" ("learned person"), which is retrospectively traced to the Greek Διδάχος, Didákhos, "teacher", from διδάσκειν, didáskein, "to teach". Thus, for example, the usual English language name for San Diego de Alcalá (after whom San Diego, California is named) is "Didacus of Alcalá".
