Late 16C English Given Names: Notes on Prospero

Late Sixteenth Century English Given Names

Notes on the name Prospero

Prospero: The entry is for Prospero Desmo, of Middlesex. I cannot identify the surname, so I do not know whether he was English, but the form is Italian; the French and Latin Prosper would be expected in English (Dauzat at Prosper).
