The Number-Happy Rosado Family of Brazil

The Rosado family of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil, is well-known for two things: politics and number-names.

Patriarch Jerônimo Ribeiro Rosado (b. 1861) had 3 children with his first wife, Maria, and 18 with his second wife, Isaura (Maria’s sister). All but two of his children have a number-name that corresponds to birth order.

Here are the names of all 21:

  1. Jerônimo (1890-1920)
  2. Laurentino (1891-1891)
  3. Tércio (1892-1960) – the Portuguese form of Tertius, “third” in Latin
  4. Isaura Quarto (1894-1896) – quarto is “fourth” in Portuguese
  5. Laurentino Quinto (1896-1897) – quinto is “fifth” in Portuguese

Some of the number-names above live on not only among descendants, but also as place names (e.g., Gov. Dix-Sept Rosado Airport, Dix-Huit Rosado Municipal Theatre).
