rio name

Ask Katy

Hi Katy / Guys.... Just a quick question that has some importance for me: Our daughter was recently born on October 20th (shame she couldnt wait a few more days to share a birthday with you know who!) and I decided to give her the middle name Rio after my favourite album. Was Rio named after a person, or as somebody told me today, a river? I REALLY NEED TO KNOW (!) so i can tell my daughter when she's old enough to understand.... Christian Tam.

"I think you will find a country in South America called Brazil, the great city of which is named Rio De Janiero. It is from here that we took the album title. However, the beautiful smiling girl pictured on the album sleeve has unsurprisingly become known to many around the world as RIO. Apparently she dances on the sand. NR"
