^ Lol that's funny and kind of cute MalaMan.

At least it's more original than those horrible 'alternative spellings.' Like Kaycee or Tiler or some crap like that. If you want to be creative be creative by choosing an unusual name.

There are much worse (and funnier) "nomes de pobre" in Brazil...

- Francinilson

- Jolenilson

- Robergleidson

- Elygleisson




And I won't tell you that some parents have the ridiculous habit of merging their names (the name of mother and of the father) to create the names of their kids!

That was the case with the Cuban boy a few years back Elian Gonzalez.

BTW I heard that some years back the government in Brazil had to step in a introduce legislation on names because the courts were become clogged with people who wanted to change their names. I heard that during the WWII years many people named their kids after their heroes so you had kids with names like Joseph Stalin Ferreira, or Adolph Hitler Teixeira but the one it seems that broke the camel's back was a man who showed up and wanted his son named Joao Sim Bragas. And he was refused quite pointedly. When asked why he would bestow such a terrible name on his own son his answer was "Well, that's how he was born."

Is there any truth to this because it is very bizarre to say the least.

Yes the government had to step in with some legislation on names, because some parents were doing some plain ridiculous things.

There are real cases of people named "Oceano Atlantico de Souza", "Colapso Cardíaco da Silva", "Éter Sulfúrico dos Santos", "Asteróide Silva Feitosa" and others.

There are also many cases of people called "John Lennon Ferreira da Costa", "Elton John Pereira de Castro", "John Kennedy Nascimento de Lima", "Elvis Presley Fernandes Maciel" and similar cases...


And about the merging of names that I cited before, here are some cases:

Juliano (father) + Alessandra (mother) = Julissandra (daughter)

Carla (mother) + Evandro (father) = Carliandro (son)

Eliana (mother) + Ronaldo (father) = Elinaldo (son)

And many others...

When emigrants from Europe were sailing across the Atlantic, huge numbers of them also went to Latin America. Surnames of Italian, German, and Irish origin are extremely common in South America, and quite common in Mexico as well. Like President Fox of Mexico and O'Higgins and Pinochet of Chile and Kubitschek of Brazil. Rademaker, Medici and Geisel were three consecutive presidents of Brazil. Eight of the 72 members of Argentina's Senate have non-Hispanic European surnames.

Boys with the first names Nelson and Wilson are very common in Latin America.
