Meaning of the baby name ANSELMO.

  

ANSELMO.  Italian, Portuguese and Spanish form of Teutonic Anshelm (q.v.), meaning "divine helmet."  It has the feminine Anselma.
    Anselmo Gonçalves Cardoso, a Portuguese professional footballer.  Anselmo Colzani (d. 2006), was an Italian operatic baritone.  Anselmo López (d. 2004), was a Spanish basketball administrator and coach. (Wiki)

... Lombardy had likewise Anshelm, the divine helmet, softened down into Anselmo or Antelmo, the name of that mild-natured Lombardic Archbishop of ours, whose constancy cost him so dear in his contention with the furious Rufus and politic Beauclerc.  That firmness, however, together with his deep theological writings, won him the honours of sanctity, though it is only on the Continent that his name took root:  England had no national love for her Anselm; and he chiefly appears in Italy, France, and Germany, where he has been cut short as Anso, endeared as Ensilo, has a feminine Ansa, and is called by the Jews Anschel. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).
