Aparecida is a Brazilian name for girls that comes from the Latin appārĕo, meaning “manifest itself,” “appear,” and “reveal.” This poetic name is closely connected to Nossa Senhora da Conceição Aparecida (Our Lady of Aparecida), the Blessed Virgin Mary and patron saint of Brazil in the Catholic Church. The title roughly translates to “Our Lady of Conception Who Appeared,” stemming from three fishermen who miraculously captured fish after finding a clay statue of the Virgin Mary and invoking Her spirit. If looking for a beautiful name that links baby to their roots and faith, ethereal Aparecida reveals itself as a worthy appellation sure to help guide your little cherub on their most incredible journey.
