Hello people,

I am sure Usman Dan Fodio did not speak Latin in the 19th century, yet his son was called Muhammadu Bello. Let's agree that the Latin Bello and the Fulani Bello are different words that by coincidence happen to look similar.

@op for your info, not all tribes bear Bello as the easterners don't bears such name. The name emanated from Ilorin where we have the Yorubas, Fulanis and the Hausas cohabitating and they have to share so many names such as Giwa, Bello etc

The name originated from the yorubas in the olden days,

It was actually coined out from an incidence that happened between a wife and a husband,

During argument between the husband and the wife, the following argument ensue.

The husband gave the wife a bam to the wife to help use to rub the body, but fortunately, it fell down from the husband, so the wife was telling the husband to pick it up,

But the husband disagreed and told the wife to bend down and use it.

Which means "Béré kó ló" in Yoruba (bend down and use it)

So from there they coined out "Bello from it




























Believe that write up at your own peril grin cool

Bello is an Italian, Spanish surname from bello 'handsome/beautiful' (Late
Latin bellus), hence a nickname for a handsome man. In medieval Italy
the word was also applied as a personal name, which also gave rise to
the surname.
