Portuguese baby names

Updated: April 9th, 2024

The Portuguese language is lavished with soft vowels and vibrant consonants, which makes it one of the beautiful languages. This language is spoken in Portugal and Brazil and some regions like Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, and Angola.

A Portuguese baby name is usually composed of one or two given names, and several family names. The first surname is generally taken from mother's family surname and the second surname is taken from the father’s surname. But for official purposes, a person can use only the last surname. Portuguese have quite flexible naming system governed by law. This law states that a Portuguese parent must give their child at least one given name and one last name. According to this law, the maximum number of given names allowed are up to two and surnames up to four. Most of the Portuguese babies’ first name are inspired by the Bible or saints.
