Fabio is a given name descended from Latin ''Fabius'' and very popular in Italy and Brazil (due to Italian migration). Its English equivalent is Fabian. The name is written without an accent in Italian and Spanish, but is usually accented in Portuguese as ''Fábio'' (with the diminutive Fabinho or Fabiano). The presence or absence of the written accent does not affect pronunciation.
