This name is linked to several roots, and today it is difficult to separate the source for each variant name. The theories include: 1) From the Latin “mīlĕs > militis” (soldier, soldier on foot). 2) From the Germanic “mild” (peaceful, calm). 3) From the Slavic root “mil” (kind, compassionate, the merciful). The name "milo" comes from different roots, and it is difficult to associate the name in certain countries. English names should be derived from the Germanic root, while the Italian names from the Slavic root though uncertainty remains.
