Hi Violet,

According to my sources,

Jussara: Tupi. Significado: que tem espinhos.
From the Tupi (indigenous tribe). "The one with thorns"
Originally spelled Juçara (from the Tupi "jyssara" - Nome de uma palmeira de onde se extrai o palmito - Name of the palm tree from which "palmito" is obtained.

Juraci: boca afável. Fem. Tupi
From the Tupi language. It means "the one with a kind mouth"

Hope this helps e boa sorte!
