I see the name Orazio a lot and I don't know what it translates to in English. It has come up a few times in my family tree.

Orazio meaning
The meaning of Orazio come may come from a craft, such as the name "Gardener" which was given to people of that profession. Some of these trade-based family names can be a profession in a different language. Because of this it is essential to know the ethnicity of a name, and the languages spoken by it's family members. Many names like Orazio originate from religious texts like the Bhagavadgītā, the Quran, the Bible, and other related texts. Often these family names relate to a religious expression such as "Worthy of praise".

ORAZIO would be the equivalent of HORACE or even HORATIO
