What do the words "il divo" mean?


The Italian words "il divo" mean "the male celebrity" in English. Etymologically, the word "divo" is related to the English words "divine" and "divinity." The word is also an archaic adjective meaning "godlike."

A common phrase using the word "divo" is "un divo del cinema," which means "a movie star." The feminine version of "divo" is the more familiar "diva," which has found wide use in English to describe celebrated opera and pop vocal performers.

There is a famous operatic pop group called "Il Divo." Oddly, not one of the members is Italian; they hail from Switzerland, America, France and Spain.
