Ezzo -- also Etzo, Ezo, Hetzo, Hezzo, Hezo—is the medieval shortened form of various first names that start with "E" or "He". The intermediary shortened form is then Ezzilo (Essilo, Etzilo, Ezilo, Hessilo, Hezzilo, Hetzilo, Hezilo). The shortening of the first names Ehrenfried/Ehrenfeld, Hermann and Heinrich is thereby documented.
Historical name bearers are:
- Ezzo or Ehrenfeld/Erenfried, (d. bef. 10 July 963), Count in Bonngau and Keldachgau, father of Herman I, Count Palatine of Lotharingia (ca. 929 - 996). The latter is the father of:
- Henry of Schweinfurt (Hezilo), Count of Schweinfurt (d. 1017), Count and Margrave of Nordgau, oldest son of Count Berthold I of Schweinfurt and of Eilika of Walbeck.
- Ezzo (poet) (d. ca. 1100), middle high German religious poet in Bamberg.
- Ezelin I, Count of Ortenburg-Altortenburg (d. 17 May 1446).
