Muto Name Meaning
Italian (mainly central–southern Italy) and Greek (Moutos): nickname from muto ‘mute’, ‘unable to speak’. The Greek name is also found in combinations such as Mutogiorgios ‘mute George’. Japanese (Muto): ‘warrior wisteria’, meaning ‘Fujiwara of Musashi’ (Musashi no Fujiwara). These Muto claim descent from Fujiwara no Hidesato (10th century), of the northern branch of the clan. Other bearers, descended from the Minamoto through the Takeda, sometimes pronounce the name Takefuji. All are found mainly in eastern Japan.
