Milos First Year – Happy Birthday Milo
Today is Milo’s birthday. He is 1 years old. Let’s have a look at Milo’s first year as well as what the meaning/origin of the name Milo.
Of Germanic origin, Milo is of uncertain derivation. It might be derived from the German mild (mild, peaceful, calm), which is from the Old German root milan (to mill, beat, crush, or rub until fine or tender). Alternatively, it might be from the Old Slavonic root milu (merciful).
The Brazilian birthday song is Parabéns a você, a version of Happy Birthday to You, which was introduced to Brazilians by American tourists. The Portuguese words came from a national competition among the listeners of Rádio Nacional in Rio de Janeiro in 1941. The winner was a young pharmacist from São Paulo named Berta. This story is told by Sérgio Cabral in his book No tempo de Almirante. Source: http://www.maria-brazil.org/brazilian_birthdays.htm
