It was my dad's idea, and my mom agreed with him.
I was named João Víctor after a soap opera character played by Tony Ramos. The original João Victor had a twin brother called Joaquim, so older people here will probably remember "João Víctor e Quinzinho".
Go figure.

Well, my fellows, my name is Rafael because of some interesting facts about my conception...
During the conception period my mother had a bad message from the doctor, who said that I would born sick, with mental illness and that statement made her suffer a lot. Due to her faith in God, she dreamed that she was seeing a paper where was written the name Rafael, in red words, and underlined.

Then arrived the time of my birth and I came healthy. After this happening, she looked for the meaning of the name Rafael and, for her own surprise, it means "healed for God". She thought that God healed me in her venter, thus, nothing more fair than name me that name.

There were plenty of niceties to tell, however, I made an huge effort in order to explain why I am named Rafael.

See you, folks!
