Hi Monica. Please check message #49 that says the name Lima is not Jewish but Celtic, like the Spanish Galicians, the French Gaulois & Bretons, the British Welsh, Scottish, Irish in part. However, my late Brazilian grandfather, born in Sao Paulo in the late 1800s (1890?), was Almirante Juvenal Greenhalgh Ferreira Lima. He used to say they are related to the Ferreira Franca or Fransa that originated mostly from Bahia. He used to say he did not know what kind of name Lima was, but that it could have two different origins, with one being Jewish. However, the Celtic origin can be supported for sure, while the Jewish cannot. Espero que voce intende todo esse ingles. De acordo com recado 49, Lima e celtico, gaelico, galicio, bretanico, bretao, mas e capaz de ter origem dupla, com outra sendo judia. A Inquisicao Catolica Espanhola acabou com todos os judeus e musulmanos, com torturas, varios seculos atraz. Dan.
