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!

In all likelihood you probably mean, "your father's name" here.
I think I was named Lucas because Lucas is a name of Jesus' disciple. And because it means bright and luminous. ;)
My name is Filipe because my mother like this name. She gives my father the choice between Filipe Nonato and other name (I don't remember the other), so my Father chosen this name.
Filipe is one of the options because was a name of the Jesus's disciples.

I was named my name because my dad wanted his son to have to same name he has, so my name is basically my father's name plus "Filho" in the end of it. I personally don't like my first name and people usually call me using my mid-name "Ernando" which I like. I think I might wanna change my name in the future in order to have a smaller name adding my mother's surname in replacement for one of my father's surnames and excluding "Filho" and my first name. But actually I think the process might be complicated, so I don't know for sure whether I'll do it.
My parents gave me name Wesley because of the movie "Blade" with actor Wesley Snipe. That seems funny, but i liked the choice!
