What I like about my name is How is How pepol like is I stand up for tham and for myself. (People like me because I stand up for myself!)

When Mario was born his father who is Filipino and his mother who is Caucasian wanted a Filipino name that his family (the Filipino side) could pronounce. There were lots of cousins who had "American" names but the Filipino lola's and lolo's could not pronounce them. Mario's dad said he wanted a "simple name like Mario or Adam" We decided on Mario. It was a name that was popular inteh Philippines, we have uncles that are named "Mario" and best of all the lola's and lolo's could say it beautifully!

Based on this original
