Ever wondered why Brazil's soccer team is full of players with single names like Neymar, Oscar, Fred and Hulk? It is Brazilian convention to use nicknames and first names in all settings, and it's no different at the World Cup.
Thankfully, the internet has given us the Brazil Names generator so we can all answer the question: "If you played for Brazil, what would your name be?" We ran some of our favorite U.S. players, sports stars, celebs and fictional characters through the generator and got some fun results.
