Comments and insights on the name Tiago: | Edit

Portuguese name that is the equivalent of Jacob/James. Saint James was originally called Santo Iago which was shortened to Sant'Iago and eventually Santiago, then finally in Portuguese as Sao Tiago (and in Spanish as Santiago or San Diego). Also spelled Thiago in Brazil to achieve the correct pronunciation in the local dialect; 'Tiago' would be pronounced "tchee-A-go" in Rio de Janeiro.

Personal experiences with the name Tiago: | Edit

I named my son Tiago. His mother is Brazilian, and I liked the name after hearing it several times in Brazil. It is a common name in Brazil and Portugual, but here it is unique, even within Florida where there is a large Latin American community. I always get compliments from people who like the name, and the kids in his preschool love it.
