I was named Claudomir, because my mother wanted a daughter instead of a son. But a little boy arrived first e she honored me with name's father.

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.

Anyone can correct me if want
thanks
