    CABF - Create A Brazilian Family

    You might be familiar with this CAF, the French version:
    http://nameberry.com/nametalk/thread...-(sur)Namebank

    So here's a Brazilian sequel. You guys had some pretty good suggestions, I saw someone suggesting Portuguese and I also saw someone suggesting a Brazilian version to honour the World Cup, and I thought that this was the perfect way to combine the two. Again, you may always suggest a new country and I will keep in mind the remaining suggestions from the French Family game too.

    Here's your friend the six sided dice again:
    http://www.bgfl.org/bgfl/custom/reso...s/dice/six.htm

    So first we need to know where you live in this huge - but wonderful - country, roll once:
    1. You are one of the very lucky and obscenely wealthy inhabitants of Rio de Janeiro who may call the Zona Sul neighbourhood of Leblon their home. On top of that you live very close to Ipanema beach.
    2. Itaquaquecetuba, does it ring a bell? Probably not, other than having a spectacular name this city of roughly 350,000 situated in the state of São Paulo there is not much to it. You live in a fairly normal house which you've decided to paint a minty colour.
    3. What about Ouro Preto, a UNESCO heritage site. That one wonderful house right at the left hand corner along one of the many cobblestone streets is yours.
    4. Is this Germany or where are we even? Welcome to Nova Petrópolis a town influenced greatly by German immigrants in Brazil's most Southern state: Rio Grande do Sul. If you wouldn't know any better when looking around town you'd be thinking you were living in Hansel and Gretel's hometown.
    5. Salvador, big city and currently the city of crazy games with lots of goals at the World Cup. You've lived here long before the World Cup and its frenzy came around. You live in the humble Graça neighbourhood which is an important residential area.
    6. Welcome to Porto Velho, Rondônia. Where you live there used to be rainforests all around, but these days due to deforestation the rainforests are not as abundant, nevertheless when you live here you definitely understand the meaning of monsoon.

    Since Brazil is a lusophone country, we will be looking at Portuguese naming patterns, so you will roll twice for the surname, once for the first surname (which will be yours), and once for the second surname (which will be your husbands). So you will end up with two surnames for your children. If you like, you may roll twice for your own surnames too. Of which one will be the surname that you will pass onto your child, you can go with 4 surnames for your children if you prefer that. (So both your parents' surnames will be passed onto your children)

    The surnamebanks:
    1 - Most Common Surnames in Brazil: Silva, Souza, Costa, Santos, Oliveira, Pereira, Rodrigues, Almeida, Nascimento, Lima, Araújo, Fernandes, Carvalho
    2 - Very Common Surnames in Brazil: Cardoso, Campos, Castro, Dias, Cavalcanti, Moura, Pinto, Barbosa, Freitas, Barros, Mendes
    3 - Brazilian Surnames With Indigenous Origins: Ajuricaba, Anhanguëra, Ubajara, Tabalipa, Jutaí, Araribóia, Iberê, Cauã, Apuã, Murici, Raoni
    4 - Brazilian Surnames From A To F: Alfaro, Amaral, Baptista, Barreto, Cândido, Carvalho, Damásio, Duarte, Espindola, Engelmann, Felaço, Fischer
    5 - Brazilian Surnames From G to L: Gardolin, Garcia, Hoffman, Hungaro, Ibers, Inácio, José, Justo, Kavaco, Kirchner, Laurindo, Linhares
    6 - Brazilian Surnames From M to R: Macedo, Maggio, Nazario, Nercolini, Onofre, Orsi, Padilha, Pessoa, Ribeiro, Romão

    Gender:
    You will have at least 2 children. Roll once and add up that number, and that will be the total amount of children you will have. 1 to 3 is girls, 4 to 6 is boys.

    Roll once for the first name and once for the middle name.
