Brazilian Naming Customs

Kids’ names are chosen mostly relying on harmony with the surname. It should fit well, but it is also important to know the meaning and pick a happy and nice one.

Like every country practice naming children in honor of parents or grandparents. In case of giving the child the father’s name, the weord Junior is added. For example, the son of Fernando will be Fernando Junior.

Mostly all Latin American names have one common feature – there are two first names and two surnames.

Brazilians have two last names: first name + middle name(s) + mother’s last name + father’s last name.

It sounds great, but it is too long for everyday usage. That is why people usually choose one name and one surname which they like the most.

What happens if a woman gets married? It’s customary for a woman to add the surname of her husband to her name. So if Ana Marlen Ortega marries Gabriel Alejoda Silva, she’ll probably add da Silva to her name becoming Anna Marlen Ortega da Silva.

But it is up to every woman – she does it optionally and it is not obligatory by law. Also in case of the divorce, a woman can own her ex-husband’s last name.

It matters if the woman became famous and known by this name. For example, Martha Suplicy, a politician from Brazil has her ex-husband’s surname and it will be pointless to change it.

Brazilian naming customs caught up the immigrants. There are many people from Japan and Italy in Brazil. These countries do not have the tradition of a double surname, there is only one.
However, when coming to Brazil, foreigners adopted local customs and began using two surnames.
