My name: Lorenzo

My full name is Lorenzo C.! I don’t have a middle name. When I was a baby, my parents called me “loro” (which means “parrot” in English) because I would never stop shouting.


Meaning: Man from Laurentum A country located on the Italian Peninsula in Southern Europe

Origin: Italy

Who chose it and why:

My parents chose this name for me because my grandfather told them the story of Saint Lorenzo. Saint Lorenzo was one of the seven deacons of ancient Rome who were martyred during the persecution of Roman Emperor Valerian in the year 258. They liked it and that’s why now I am called like this!

My name:Mercedes

My name is Mercedes. It means "grateful" and it´s a Spanish name. September 24 is Saint Mercedes’ day. People with this name are said to have great imagination and be“full of life and color”. They are afraid of their acts. They don´t get easily used to routines, and work better when they work with freedom.
My mum chose this name for me because she got married at “Nuestra Señora de la Merced” church. Mercedes has a lot of nicknames: Merce, Mechi, Mecha, Merceditas, Mechu, Mer, Merchu. Nobody in my family has the same name, but a famous singer in Argentina does. Her name is Mercedes Sosa, and she sings folk (you can learn more about her at her official website).

Adjectives to describe my name:
Easy going
Really cool
