"tito" (pronounced tee-toe, with the emphasis on the first syllable) is the tagalog word for "uncle".

note the similarity to the spanish word for "uncle", that being "tio". tagalog, being the main dialect of the philippines, has the spanish language as one its strongest linguistic influences, owing to the philippines being conquered by spain via ferdinand magellan during the days of the conquistadors.

in terms of usage, "tito" can be used as either a title prefacing a man's name (as in, tito ben) or as a noun ("tatlong tito" or "three uncles").

"tito" as a name, however, is just wrong.
