All of us humans has a name,even non-humans do. It is mainly used for identification.User names ,nicknames,fake names,real names, and a lot more to mention.No one really knows the exact beginning of using names but our name makes us unique.We always see famous and successful people with their names on every form of media. Speaking of successful people,let me share to you interesting thoughts about the names of Miss Universe winners.
*Armi Kuusela of Finland,the first Miss Universe winner. Her first name "armi" is derived from the Finnish word "armas", meaning dear or loved one - the name Armas is a male name - or from the word "armo", meaning grace or forgiveness, although this seems less likely as Armo is a very uncommon name (and mainly used for boys) and Armas was very popular in the first half of the 1900s. The first letter in the Alphabet is "A",interestingly our first Miss Universe's name begins with letter "A".
*It is a fact that the largest interval between a nation winning Miss Universe is Japan and they also hold the title for the shortest name among all winners.8 letters.R-I-Y-O M-O-R-I !
*The beautiful Miss Russia Oxana Federova may be the only dethroned Miss Universe (2002) but unknown to many her name "Oxana" actually means "hospitable"in Old Greek.
* THE BEAUTIFUL MARIAS.We have five "Maria" Miss Universe winners .Two of which comes from the Philippines,also two from Brazil,and one from Mexico.It is of Latin origin, and the meaning of Maria is "star of the sea".Indeed they are not only stars of the sea,but stars of the Universe!
*. The first black African to win Miss Universe was Mpule Kwelagobe, of Botswana. "Mpule" means "one who comes with the rain" and she reigned supreme in that night of raining beautiful women when she was crowned Miss Universe.
*Miss Universe 1988 Porntip Nakhirunkanok.The name "PORNTIP" as bizarre as it may sound to non-Thais actually means “to sleep like a baby” in Thai.She's aging gracefully.Baby face indeed!
*Did you know that out of 60 Miss Universe winners, 12 winners has a first name that begins with letter "M"?So far the only time that three Miss Universe winners had the same first letter of first name was during the years 1990,1991 and 1992. MONA-MARIA-MICHELLE!
*Both names of Miss Universe Winners from Finland begins with letter "A".
*Let also not forget Anja Aulikki Jarvinen from Finland who was 2nd Runner-up in Miss Universe 1962.
*The Power "D" from Puerto Rico. DEBORAH-DAYANARA-DENISE won Miss Universe respectively in 1985,1993, and 2001.
*The current national director of Miss Puerto Rico for Miss Universe Pageant also has a name that begins with letter "D" Desirée Lowry Rodríguez Corozal who was 4th Runner-up in Miss Universe 1995.
*There are only six Miss Puerto Rico Queens who represented Miss Universe with a name that begins with letter "D".All of them placed except Daisy García Rodríguez who competed in Miss Universe 1992.
*Now let's talk about difference.It is intriguing that 1 or 2 letters can actually differentiate one Miss Universe' name from another. 1 Letter Difference :MARGARET of SOUTH AFRICA(1978) vs MARGARETA of SWEDEN (1966) and 2 Letter Difference. DAYANA of VENEZUELA(2008) vs DAYANARA PUERTO RICO(1994).
*The Almost All South American "ABC" Queens. The Beautiful blonde Miss Uruguay was one of the favorites in Miss Universe 1985.Had Miss Uruguay Andrea Lopez won Miss Universe in 1985,we could have had our first "ABC" queens.Miss Uruguay placed 4th in the semifinals with an average of 8.698 while Miss Puerto Rico placed 5th with an average score of 8.652.A difference of .046 point.Almost close!In the end,Miss Uruguay placed last in the FINAL 5 while Miss Puerto Rico brought the crown all the way to her home country.In 1986, Barbara Palacios from Venezuela won Miss Universe.Another South American queen won Miss Universe in 1987 in the name of Cecilia Bolocco from Chile.
*No woman has ever won Miss Universe with a name that begins with letters E,F,O,Q,T,U and V. Could it be this year?So far no girl has a name that starts with letter O,Q,U, and V.Only E,F,and T! I think among these girls, Croatia and Lithuania (if it's confirmed) have the biggest chance to win the crown based on beauty alone.
