86 Brazilian Baby Names With Meanings

Do you want to add an international flair to your child’s name? Or do you want a name that nods to your child’s heritage, culture, or ancestors? Then you shouldn’t think twice before picking a Brazilian baby name for your bundle of joy.

Brazilian names are composed of two personal names, but at times, the first name can be used on its own. Upon marriage, a woman almost always keeps her maiden name. But in earlier times, Brazilian women were required to change their maiden name, keep their father’s name, and add their husband’s last name.

A Brazilian family name can have more than one word. ‘Do’, ‘dos’, and ‘da’, which means ‘of the’, is also used as a part of the family name. Brazilians are also allowed to use just one family name, which is the father’s paternal family name. The family name is usually taken from the paternal side, but that doesn’t mean mother’s family is left in isolation. Citizens also have the option of picking two surnames, in which the first surname is the mother’s family surname and the final surname is the father’s family surname.
