Okay, this is off-topic, but I'm curious how everyone got the
handles they use on brazzil.com. I see such interesting names
here, but some of them I don't know what they mean. Some
names are Portuguese, and I'd love to know the English
translation.

As for me, "Po" is what I was called as a little boy. (My name
is Paul.) The nickname stuck, and I've just kept it ever since.

So, how did you pick your name?

What do you mean? How I didded get my name? You will have to ask my mama in Bologna the reason for this. I was named for Papa who was named for his papa. He was named for his papa who died while chopping wood.

By the way, po,
your name with a cedilla (p) can mean something very nasty
it's the abbreviation for porra (jism, sperm),
but many Brazilians use it today without thinking about the origin of the word

Today's lesson:
"No encha o saco, p!"

something like: don't bother me (don't fuck with me), shit

I originally joined this board using the name "Sick of America", which in many aspects I am. I was asking how one can live permanently in Brasil. I am still considering it. I probably should learn Portuguese, eh? Anyway, I shortened it to Sick, and I can't really give an answer as to why I didn't change it.

Tchau

Nah, "po" is not that ofensive...Specially the way you would pronouce it...
and we often say "po" to avoid sounding offensive!Like you say "geez" instead of "Jesus"...
Gosh, I say "po" all the time...lol...I take it for granted that it came from such an offensive word...

Oh yeah, and I took my name because that's how they call the people who are born in Rio de Janeiro. I'm really proud of it.
