The Portuguese form of Bonifatius is typically spelled with a diacritic, namely: Bonifácio. As such, it's probably better to create a separate entry for the Portuguese form.

A notable bearer of this name was the Brazilian statesman, naturalist and poet José Bonifácio de Andrada e Silva (1763-1838).

If you wish to pronounce "Bonifacio" correctly, as in Italy, you are advised to remember the following:

Bo-Nee-FAH-Chee-Oh

"Bo" is the usual. The "I" in "Ni" is stressed as "ee" (i). "Fa" stressed and lingered upon only a moment longer. "A" as in "Father". "Ci" is pronounced "Chee", not as an "S". "O" is as usual in English, "Oh".
