    Default Who are those people with Brazil surname?

    Is it a colonial surname? A imperial time surname? A patriotic family surname from independance times?

    There’s even a Scottish Gaelic “Brasil/Brazil” surname.

    Yes, which is probably an old Gaelic word anglicized.

    I imagine a lot of different families changed their surname to Brazil.
