Question: Why were you named your name?

- I was named Flavia because both mom and dad have names starting with F;
- Julia was named Julia because her parents like the actress Julia Roberts;
- Mateus was named like that because of Saint Matthew;
- He was named Ronaldo in honor of the soccer player.

Now it's your turn!

This my sister and I will never know. I wish my mom and dad had told me why they named my sister (Marli) and me both with names starting with M before mom died in '92 and dad had stroke-related dementia as early as 2007. The stroke impaired the vigor of his mental abilities and greatly diminished his capacity to conduct a normal conversation.

My sister and I'll take this secret to the grave. None of my uncles and aunts, most of whom died except aunt Rute who still can walk and talk, know why either.

Well, my name(Renato) in english means 'Re-Born' (weird, hein?). I have no idea why my parents gave me this name but i like it. As far as i can remember i was only born once! My name after the second time i'll be born, i guess, will be only Nato...lol... Or maybe it's the opposite... not sure...

Hahaha, good one, Renato!

Well, My mom said my name would be Guilherme, who was an actor, that unfortunately for some reason killed his girlfriend. She told me she got dumbfounded and left the idea of naming me Guilherme lol. Then, she decided my name would be Vinicius, who was also an actor, but he was murdered and she decided to name me Renan in honor to a volleyball player. (No more actors lmfao).

My name is Ester, it is a Biblical name from the history "Ester and the king".
I love my name!
Best regards
My name is Iracema because my dad, despite he was a japanese man, he read the Jose de Alencar's books and when I was born he chose this name for me! By the way, this word "iracema" is an anagram of the word "america".

Hi Iracema

Quite interesting! I didn't know about the anagram. And Jose de Alencar's book is really inspiring.
Welcome to the forum!

Emanuel, I think most of you may know, was one of Jesus' names, according to the Good Book.

By the way, Iracema also means "came from honey, or honey lips" in Tupi-Guarani, she probably does know that, but some of us may not. =)
