This Spanish and Portuguese boys' name, a favorite of Latinos in the US, means “bright.” To say it correctly, think of the “j” as an “h,” and pronounce it HA-vee-air. A variation of the English surname Xavier, It originated as an homage to St. Francis Xavier, the Spanish missionary and patron saint of all missionaries who work in foreign lands. The name has gotten some high-profile attention from fans of Javier Bardem of “Pirates of the Caribbean.” Of course, there are variations too, including Havier and Javiero.
