Origin of Diego

Diego is a Spanish name. It originally derived from the medieval names Didacus, Didaco and Didago, but is today seen as a variant of the Hebrew name Jacob, because it derived from Medieval Spanish “Sant Yago“ (=”Saint James“), who was Saint James the Great. From this came the name Santiago and the short form Diego.

Meaning of Diego

Diego means “teacher” (from ancient Greek “didakhḗ/δῐδᾰχή” = instruction/teaching) and “Saint James“ (from Santiago) or “may God protect”, “holder of the heel” and “supplanter” (from James or Jacob).
