This name derives from the Germanic root “*auþa / *ôþela > ōt > uod / audo” (property, inheritance, heritage, recent form “wealth, fortune“). Audo and Odo” were originally diminutives of all names beginning with the element “od-, ot-”. The name is best known for being used by Shakespeare in one of his works, “the Othello”. Othello is a tragedy believed to have been written in the year approximately 1603, and based on the short story “Un Capitano Moro” (A Moorish Captain) by Cinthio, a disciple of Boccaccio, first published in 1565.
