Bebeto named his baby after Lothar Matthäus

German soccer player Lothar Matthäus (in 1990)
Lothar Matthäus

In July of 1994, in the middle of the FIFA World Cup tournament, the wife of Brazilian soccer player Bebeto (full name: José Roberto Gama de Oliveira) gave birth to a baby boy.

The couple decided to name the baby Mattheus in honor of famed German footballer Lothar Matthäus (pronounced LOH-tar mah-TEH-oos), whose surname is the German form of Matthew.

Two days later, Brazil played the Netherlands in the World Cup quarterfinals. Bebeto scored one of Brazil’s goals and — to celebrate both the goal and his newborn son — began to swing his arms side-to-side, as if rocking a baby.

At the sideline, two other Brazilian players (Mazinho and Romário) joined in on the rock-a-baby revelry:

Brazilian soccer players Mazinho (#17), Bebeto (#7), and Romário (#11) during the Brazil vs. Netherlands game of the 1994 World Cup.

This memorable goal celebration is likely behind the debut of Mattheus in the U.S. baby name data the following year:

  • 1997: unlisted
  • 1996: 7 baby boys named Mattheus
  • 1995: 6 baby boys named Mattheus [debut]
  • 1994: unlisted
  • 1993: unlisted

The Brazilian Portuguese spelling of the name, Matheus, also saw an uptick in usage in the mid-1990s.

Almost two decades later, in 2012, Mattheus Oliveira — following in his father’s footsteps — made his debut as a professional footballer.

Popular baby names in the Channel Islands, 2021

The island of Sark (one of the four main Channel Islands)
Sark (one of the Channel Islands)

The Channel Islands are an archipelago in the English Channel. They are divided into two territories — the bailiwicks of Jersey and Guernsey — and, like the Isle of Man, they are Crown Dependencies, but not officially part of the UK. (The residents of all three regions are British citizens, though.)

The Bailiwick of Jersey includes the most-populous island, Jersey, while the Bailiwick of Guernsey includes the less-populous islands of Guernsey, Alderney, Sark, and Herm.

English is the official language in both bailiwicks, but local forms of Norman French (like Jèrriais, and Guernesiais) are also spoken on certain islands.

Now, on to the names!

Jersey

Last year, Jersey welcomed a total of 890 babies — 426 girls and 464 boys. Here are the island’s top 10 girl names and top 10 boy names of 2021:

Girl Names

  1. Sienna
  2. Isla
  3. Olivia
  4. Willow
  5. Ellie
  6. Maria
  7. Sophia
  8. Valentina
  9. Amelia
  10. Charlotte

Boy Names

  1. Arthur
  2. Oliver
  3. Noah
  4. Freddie
  5. Alexander
  6. Lucas
  7. Toby
  8. William
  9. Henry
  10. Sebastian

Since 2014, the name Sienna has reached the girls’ top 10 only twice…but it ranked #1 both times. I can’t account for the higher usage in 2018, but the 2021 return could be attributable to the influence of royal baby Sienna Elizabeth, born in September to Princess Beatrice.

Guernsey

Last year, Guernsey welcomed a total of 527 babies — 263 girls and 264 boys. Here are the bailiwick’s top girl names and top boy names of 2021:

Girl Names

  1. Olivia, 6 baby girls
  2. Charlotte, 4 (6-way tie)
  3. Evie, 4 (6-way tie)
  4. Florence, 4 (6-way tie)
  5. Imogen, 4 (6-way tie)
  6. Isla, 4 (6-way tie)
  7. Penelope, 4 (6-way tie)

Boy Names

  1. Luca, 6 baby boys (tie)
  2. Theodore, 6 (tie)
  3. Archie, 5 (3-way tie)
  4. Leo, 5 (3-way tie)
  5. Theo, 5 (3-way tie)
  6. Arthur, 4 (6-way tie)
  7. George, 4 (6-way tie)
  8. Max, 4 (6-way tie)
  9. Oscar, 4 (6-way tie)
  10. Thomas, 4 (6-way tie)
  11. William, 4 (6-way tie)

My source also mentioned a few other facts…

  • Isabella was given to 3 baby girls, Jessica to 2, and Isabella-Jude, Izabella, and Isabelle to 1 each.
  • Lucas was given to 3 baby boys, and Matthew, Mateus, Matheus, and James to 1 each.
  • Over 54% of the babies born in Guernsey last year were given a name that was used just once.
  • Back in 1996, the top names in Guernsey were Jessica, Lauren, and Sophie (a 3-way tie) and James.

This is the first time I’ve posted rankings for Guernsey, but I’ve been posting Jersey’s rankings for a few years — here’s 2020, for instance.

P.S. In case you’re wondering, the word “bailiwick” refers to the jurisdiction of a bailiff.

Numerology and baby names: Number 6

numbers

Below are hundreds of baby names with a numerological value of 6.

What do I mean by that?

Well, in numerology, you substitute each letter in a word with that letter’s ordinal value in the alphabet. (The letter B has a value of 2, for instance, because it’s the second letter.) Then you add those ordinal values together to come up with a total. Lastly, you add the digits of that total together to obtain a numerological value.

Here’s an example: The letters in the name Ian have the values 9, 1, and 14. Added together, these values equal 24. And the digits of 24 added together equal 6.

All of the “6” names below are sub-categorized by totals — just in case any of those larger numbers are significant to anyone. Within each group you’ll find some of the most popular “6” names per gender (according to the most recent set of U.S. baby name rankings).

Number 6: Meaning and Associations

What does the number six mean in numerology? Unfortunately, there’s no clear answer. Various numerological systems exist, and each one has its own interpretation of the number six.

That said, if we look at a couple of modern numerology/astrology websites, we see 6 being described as “harmonious,” “loving,” “stable,” “compassionate,” and “responsible.”

Personally, I prefer to look at associations, which are a bit more concrete. Here are some things that are associated with the number 6:

  • Beehive (six-sided cells)
  • Snowflake (six-fold symmetry)
  • Guitar (6 strings)
  • Football (6 points for a touchdown)
  • Ice hockey (6 players per side, including the goalie)
  • Cube (six faces)
  • Six degrees of separation (the idea that all people are six or fewer social connections away from one other)

What does the number 6 mean to you? What are your strongest associations with the number?
