The Daily Drool – Copa America – Brazil: Alisson Becker

4 Jun

Alisson Becker BrazilGoalkeeper Alisson currently plays for Roma. He has represented Brazil at the U17, U20 and senior levels. I’ve always thought of Alisson as a girl’s name and thought “Okay, maybe I’m wrong.” but then I found that his older brother (also a goalkeeper) is named Muriel, which is also usually a woman’s name so I have no idea what’s going on with the Becker clan. Brazilians, is this a common practice in your country? Are these two names more unisex? Anyhow, I have this stuck in my head now.
