Attestation: VA·27 (kaio) (1)
Language: perhaps Celtic
Word Type: proper noun
Semantic Field: personal name

Grammatical Categories: nom. sg. masc.
Stem Class: o

Morphemic Analysis: kai̯-o(s) or kai̯-ō (?)
Phonemic Analysis: /kai̯o/ or /kai̯ō/ (?)
Meaning: 'Kaio(s)'


Most probably a hypocoristic masculine personal name, either o-stem with dropped -s or Latinised on-stem kai̯ō. Celtic etymology possible, but not certain (see kai̯-).
