i too have been searching for the meaning of my name. my friend from Brazil says Irasema means "virgin with honey lips". another thing i found was the legend of the Brazilian goddess Irasema. she was a virgin who was sacraficed (pushed into a volcano) by her brothers. i am still looking for that whole story because i would like to know why they did that. my mother told me there was a famous Venezuelan actress named Irasema Dilion (not sure of the spelling of her last name). good luck finding more information. i would like to learn more as well.
