OK, maybe this has been asked and answered here before, but I couldn't find it. I'd like to know if anyone can give an explanation of how and why Brazilians get their colorful one-word names. I'd like to know: 1. Do they choose it themselves or some one else? 2. Do they always mean something? Do they ever mean something? 3. How good do you have to be to get a name, or is your level of play not a factor? 4. How did it start in the beginning and does it have roots in some Brazilian cultural tradition? 5. Some Portugese players have one word names, so did it start there? So many questions! If you can answer them I'd be most grateful.
