uruguay

According to Uruguay’s Dirección Nacional de Identificación Civil (DNIS), the most popular baby names in the country in 2020 were Emma and Juan. (Though, if the two renderings of Maria — accented “María” and unaccented “Maria” — were combined, Maria would easily be the #1 girl name.)

Here are Uruguay’s top 10 girl names and top 10 boy names of 2020:

Girl Names

I’ve never looked at rankings for Uruguay before, so I don’t have past rankings to compare these to. But here are some of the names from lower down on the list (which, like a couple of other sets of rankings* we’ve seen lately, wasn’t two gender-specific lists but a single list that combined both genders).

  • 83 babies were named Celeste, which is the nickname (El Celeste, “the sky-blue”) of Uruguay’s national soccer team.
  • 11 were named Edinson, which is the first name of Uruguayan soccer player Edinson Cavani.
  • 8 were named Nairobi, which is a female character from the popular Spanish-language TV series La casa de papel (English title: Money Heist).
  • 2 were named Tabaré, which was the first name of Uruguayan president Tabaré Vázquez (who both left office and passed away in 2020).

Finally, here’s a selection Uruguay’s single-use baby names of 2020:

Atahualpa, Brislady, Crisbely, Duckenson, Elubina, Fritznel, Garibaldi, Hartmut, Izpabelli, Juanfer, Khantuta, Leovisnel, Missber, Norquides, Olgalisy, Pierangely, Quinto, Roismerl, Szabolcs, Tonatiuh, Tonantzín, Urumana, Viorky, Wanderson, Xilianny, Yusnavi, Zolanch

Some possible explanations/associations:

  • Atahualpa – the last emperor of the Inca
  • Garibaldi – 19th-century Italian revolutionary Giuseppe Garibaldi
  • Pierangely – Italian actress Pier Angeli
  • Tonatiuh – Nahua (Aztec) sun deity
  • Tonantzín – Nahuatl honorific title meaning “our mother”

The Rosado family of Brazil

Jerônimo Dix-Sept Rosado

Brazilian pharmacist Jerônimo Rosado (b. 1861) had three children with his first wife, Maria. After Maria died, he married Maria’s sister, Isaura, and they welcomed 18 more children.

Notably, nearly all of the 21 Rosado children were given number-names. Each number-name corresponded to that particular child’s position in the birth order. Here’s the full list:

  1. Jerônimo (b. 1890)
  2. Laurentino (b. 1891)
  3. Tércio (b. 1892) – tércio is a Portuguese form of tertius, meaning “third” in Latin
  4. Isaura Quarto (b. 1894) – quarto means “fourth” in Portuguese
  5. Laurentino Quinto (b. 1896) – quinto means “fifth” in Portuguese
  6. Isaura Sexta (b. 1897) – sexta means “sixth” in Portuguese
  7. Jerônima Sétima (b. 1898) – sétima means “seventh” in Portuguese
  8. Maria Oitava (b. 1899) – oitava means “eighth” in Portuguese
  9. Isauro Nono (b. 1901) – nono means “ninth” in Portuguese
  10. Vicência Décima (b. 1902) – décima means “tenth” in Portuguese
  11. Laurentina Onzième (b. 1903) – onzième means “eleventh” in French
  12. Laurentino Duodécimo (b. 1905) – duodécimo means “twelfth” in Portuguese
  13. Isaura Trezième (b. 1906) – trezième means “thirteenth” in French
  14. Isaura Quatorzième (b. 1907) – quatorzième means “fourteenth” in French
  15. Jerônimo Quinzième (b. 1908) – quinzième means “fifteenth” in French
  16. Isaura Seize (b. 1910) – seize means “sixteen” in French
  17. Jerônimo Dix-Sept (b. 1911) – dix-sept means “seventeen” in French
  18. Jerônimo Dix-Huit (b. 1912) – dix-huit means “eighteen” in French
  19. Jerônimo Dix-Neuf (b. 1913) – dix-neuf means “nineteen” in French
  20. Jerônimo Vingt (b. 1918) – vingt means “twenty” in French
  21. Jerônimo Vingt-Un (b. 1920) – vingt-un means “twenty-one” in French

Notice how the number-names shifted from Portuguese to French, and from ordinal to cardinal.

Several members of the family had successful careers in politics. For instance, patriarch Jerônimo served as the mayor of the city of Mossoró from 1917 to 1919. Dix-Sept held the same office from 1948 to 1950. Vingt held it from 1953 to 1958. And Dix-Huit served as the mayor of Mossoró three times: 1973-1977, 1983-1988, and 1993-1996. (The city’s airport is named after Dix-Sept; its theater is named after Dix-Huit.)
