- Meanings and history of the name Hipolito
Hipolito, Spanish and Portuguese name of Greek origin. "Hippo" means "Horses" and the second part "lytus" "loosen/destroy" and means, more or less, "Destroyed by Horses." This comes from the story of Hippolytus who scorned the love of the lady god Phaedra. She retaliated by spooking his horses. He fell and was drug to death by his chariot. Far from having a negative association, it was also believed that Artemis asked Asclepius to resurrect the young man since he had vowed chastity to her and a following grew around him and his story.
Pronunciation: (ee POE lee toe)
