Vito is an Italian name that is related to the Latin word "vita", meaning "life".[1] It is a modern form of the Latin name "Vitus", meaning "life-giver," [2] as in Saint Vitus, the patron saint of dogs and a heroic figure in southern Italian folklore. The Name "Vito" is unrelated to, yet still often confused with, the German name "Wido"; the root of the name "Vito" is Latin, while "Wido" is derived from Ancient Germanic.[3]
