Ok, well first you should know that Brazil has the largest Japanese population outside of Japan, the largest Italian population outside of Italy, and there are 12 million people of German ancestry living in the south of the country as well. There are a LOT of Japanese, Italian and German Brazilians, so there are a lot of Japanese, Italian and German names. Many Japanese Brazilians are given or have taken Portuguese names, however. And then with the high interest in the English language, Enlgish names (I've noticed mostly among men with the -son ending) are quite popular as well. There are also many Arabic Brazilians, and of course there are indigenous names as well, but as I lived in the "high class" part of Brazil I unfortunately didn't get to meet many.

Anyway, on with the list of typical names I encountered down there:
Maria
Marina

Luísa/Luiza

Gina

Bruna

Beatriz
Paula
Camila
Marisa / Marissa
Francisca
Gabriela
Gisele / Gisela
Larisa / Larissa
Leandra
Marta
Natália/Nathália
Priscila
Telma
Carol
Carolina
Cristiana
Cyntia

Fabíola
Geórgia (I knew a Jorjia)
Ivete
Carla / Karla
Letícia
Marília
Rafaela
Raquel
Rita
Roberta
Rosa
Vitória
Wanderléia
Ximena

Boys names to come and pronunciation if you want it. :) Will edit later tonight.
