Arlo is an Old English name from the Middle Ages that means "fortified hill". The name is derived from the Old English terms "hoer," which means "strong," and "hlaew," which means "hill". Arlo also has German and Spanish origins, where it means "known across the land" and "between two hills," respectively. The name stands for defense, grit, endurance, and safety. In addition to its Old English and German origins, Arlo might also be derived from the Italian equivalent of Charles or the Spanish term for the barberry tree.
