What does cepeo mean?

According to Google Translate, this means "onions".

Are there any connotations, other words that carry the same meaning, or anything else specifically related to it?

    Welcome to the site! I have checked a couple of printed and online dictionaries and found no trace of cepeo, but Google Translate does indeed translate it to onions. There are similar words meaning "onion", for example cepa, cepe, and caepe. Have you seen cepeo in other places? It seems wrong to me, but I could be mistaken. Context (where you found the word originally or where you want to use it) will help answering your question.

    The Latin word for onion is cepa or caepa (feminine) or else cepe or caepe (neuter). Google translate is rubbish.
