Meaning of the baby name ABBO.


ABBO.  Old German name meaning "a man."  See Abbon.  Usage: France, Germany, Latin. 

The name Abbo, Abbi, Abbe, are evidently as Förstemann says, from the Gothic aba, "a man."  The other forms in e and i he thinks may be variations of the same. (English Surnames, Ferguson, 1858)

ABBO FLORIACENSIS, or Abbon of Fleury, b. 945; a French scholar, proficient in sciences, and distinguished in the schools of Paris and Rheimis.  He spent two years in England, helping archbishop Oswald of York in restoring the monastic system; was made abbot of Fleury in 960; was sent twice to Rome by Robert the wise, and each time warded off a threatened papal interdict.  He was killed in 1004 while trying to quell a monkish revolt.  He wrote, in epitome, the lives of the Roman pontiffs and some controversial works. (Library of Universal Knowledge, A.B.E., 1881)
