Yes actually it is because of certain laws

Best Answer

Yes. It is illegal to name your baby that in portugal. Not only is it illegal to name your baby that but if you come to visit and your name is already Tom then you are gravely fround upon. Trust me, me and my friend TOM had to learn that the hard way.

What the heck does "Tom" mean in Portugal anyway that makes it so objectionable?

Best Answer

true

Best Answer

Get round it by naming him Scrotom.This would take balls.

Best Answer

true Before naming your child in Portugal, best consult this mammoth, 80-page government doc (and have it translated to English) that tells you which names you can and can't use. It's pretty strict (and random) – Tomás is OK but Tom isn't – and celebs can forget about the likes of Apple and Brooklyn, which aren't even on the banned list. Essex girls rejoice, however – Mercedes is allowed!

Yes it's true. You can only give a portuguese child a foreign name if one of the parents is foreign. It might change some day though
