Naming Custom In Brazil
Brazil has a history of naming ridiculous men, a practice that stems from the early days of our independence.
This tradition has seen several different phases.

Though I am not an absolute authority on this subject, I will share with you some of it, for your pleasure.
Just after becoming independent, affluent Brazilian families who wished to show off that they had really severed their ties with Portugal would choose for their children names in Tupi, an Amerindian language that was widely spoken in the country (even by white people) until the second half of the 18th century.
However most of the time such names had only an improper gender, like Araci, generally given to women, which was the name of the god of the Tupian sun.
Among the names most often remembered as improper are Marimbondo (hornet), Ipanema (polluted or barren water), or Irajá (beehive).
Other families, with more “revolutionary” minds, would give their children French names to honor La Révolution.
Most of these name are also improper because they gave their children the surnames of French politicians of philosophers. So we have Brazilians names Voltaire, Diderot, Rousseau, and the like.
Since French was popular as the language of the élites back then, some people would choose French names even if they were not fans of the French Revolution.
Some of them came about with interesting schemes. In Rio Grande do Norte, a state in the Brazilian Northeast, a wealthy family numbered their children in French instead of giving them proper names.
Fans of arts and sciences would choose the names of famous composers, sages, painters, or writers from France, Germany, Italy, and (to a lesser extent) Great Britain. Military officials would honor famous generals, mostly from France, Germany, and Great Britain: Nelson and Wellington, but also Napoleon (soon adapted into Napoleão) and Bismarck.
By the period Brazil became a republic, the French, replaced by the Americans, fell out of favor. The same phenomenon occurred again in the previous century.
So as we have given you the top 50 Brazilian girls name and meanings, i suggest the next thing thing is to start making plans with your wife on how to produce female Brazilians to give these names.
