Evaristo - Meaning of Evaristo
[ 4 syll. e-va-ris-to, ev-ari-sto ] The baby boy name Evaristo is pronounced as ey-Vaa-RIY-STow †. Evaristo's language of origin is Old Greek, and it is used largely in the Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish languages. The name's meaning is 'well-pleasing'. It is derived from eu meaning 'good, well' ; areskein 'to please, to satisfy'. Euarestos (Old Greek), Euaristos (Old Greek), and Evaristus (Latin) are original forms of Evaristo. The second element is areskein (meaning 'to please, to satisfy'), but the name has been re-spelled such that it appears to be from the Greek 'aristos' meaning 'best, excellent'. The name Evaristus was borne by the fifth pope, who was martyred under the Roman emperor Hadrian in 107 AD.
In addition, Evaristo is a variant of Evan (Scottish, English, and Welsh).
A variant of Evaristo is Évariste (French).
