What famous soccer star was named after a U.S. President?

  • Lionel Messi
  • Cristiano Ronaldo correct

    José Dinis Aveiro named his son Cristiano Ronaldo, after his favorite movie actor and president at the time of Ronaldo's birth, Ronald Reagan. What we didn't know was that the 'Cristiano' meant that he would one day be the bearer of the Euro 2016 metaphorical cross. According to his sister's Instagram post in regards to the game “...as our savior Jesus Christ suffered on the cross for a better world for us, Cristiano cried in the pain of not being able to help his teammates and his beloved people." Oh, we are just as shocked as you that the man who built himself a museum also has a god complex. Source: Encyclopedia Britannica
