Aello (; Ancient Greek: Ἀελλώ, Aellō) in Greek mythology was one of the Harpy sisters who would abduct people and torture them on their way to Tartarus. She is also referred to as:
- Aellopus (; Ἀελλόπους, Aellopous, "whirlwind-footed")
- Aellope (; Αελλώπη, Aellōpē)
- Podarge (; Ποδάργη, Podargē, "she who is foot-speedy")
- Podarce (; Ποδάρκη, Podarkē, "she who is foot-safe"?)
- Nicothoë (; Νικοθόη, Nikothoē, "she who is victory-speedy")
It is claimed she is the mother of Achilles's immortal steeds Balius (Balios) and Xanthus (Xanthos) by Zephyrus, but some sources claim it was really her sister Celaeno.
She is sometimes confused with Aella the Amazon.
