The meaning of Dingo is 'resembling the wild dog'. The name Dingo originates from the Dharug language, the traditional language of the Australians of the Sydney area. One can find the frequent mention of Dingo in the Dreamtime stories of indigenous Australians. According to the belief of the very ancient Yarralin tribe of Australia, the Dreamtime dingo is the ancestor of both dingoes and humans. According to Indigenous Mythological belief, dingoes were helpful camp guardians as they protected humans from evil spirits. Indigenous nations revered them as 'creators', who became an essential part of the country and were considered equal to men. Dingo as a first name is most common in Quebec. Dindo as a surname surfaced in the US and Canada between 1840 and 1920. Most Dingo families were residents of New York, as reported in 1840.
