what does monte vallo mean?
We are moving to a street named "Monte Vallo Manor". How do I say it, and what does it mean?
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.
