Abo is an Arabic and Hebrew male name and a variant form of Abbas.[1] It is from Abbas that Abo takes its meaning of stern or somber father.[1] In Arabic, Abbas is a symbolic name referring to the lion, the king of beasts.[2]

The variant used in the Russian language as a Christian name is "А́бо" (Abo).[3] It is possible that the Russian name was derived from the Biblical Hebrew word meaning father, but it is also possible that it was derived from av, the name of a Hebrew month.[3]

In the United States, according to the 2000 U.S. Census Abo is an uncommon first name but a fairly common last name for both men and women; ranking 53,205 out of 88,799.[1]
