The name Ignacio comes from the Latin name Ignatius and was made popular by Saint Ignacio, the founder of the Catholic Jesuit order. The name already had a history of variation and translation before Saint Ignacio took it (he was born Iñigo Loiolakoa) and it’s said to have originated from the Etruscan name Egnatius. It’s an interesting and attractive name and is still pretty popular in the Spanish speaking world.
