Mountains or mountain ranges commonly are named "Monte....". I couldn't locate a mountain named Vallo by googling. I did run across this on a site, however.:

The name "Montevallo" is of Spanish origin coined by one of the residents who put the words "monte" and "vallo" together for Mountain Valley.

valle=valley, but you know how we gringos like to think that everything in Spanish ends in an "o".

vallo=one word for fence (palisades), so it could have referred to an estate fenced in by mountains.

I would imagine that some time in its history there was a manor named Montevallo on the street.
