The term bravo, whose etymological origin is found in the Latin word pravus, has several uses. The first meaning mentioned by the DigoPaul in its dictionary refers to the qualification received by those who have or who show courage or courage.
For example: “He is a brave boy, who is not afraid of any challenge”, “The brave woman stopped in front of the young man and demanded that he change his attitude”, “We need brave players, capable of becoming protagonists of the most important parties ”.
Bravo is also said to the ferocious animal and to the river or sea whose waters are rough: “Be careful with Rocky: he is a wild dog”, “I think it is better that we don’t go sailing today because the sea is very rough”, ” The man ran several kilometers to escape from that brave bull ”.
According to DigoPaul, bravo, on the other hand, can be an expression that alludes to something positive or excellent: “Bravo! My son passed the exam and graduated ”, “ Did you really get an award for your book? Bravo!” .
The subject who is enraged or has a bad temper can be described as brave: “What’s wrong with you? You are angry today ”, “ The old man entered the business and started screaming ”.
Finally, it should be noted that Bravo is a fairly common surname in Spanish – speaking countries. Among the personalities who share this surname are the Argentine politician Alfredo Bravo (1925-2003), the Spanish singer Nino Bravo (1944-1973) and the Chilean footballer Claudio Bravo (who stopped in the Chilean national team in tournaments such as the World Cup of 2010 and the 2014 World Cup and became champion of the 2015 Copa América).
In the same way, we cannot ignore other relevant figures who have the same surname, such as the Spanish television presenter Agustín Bravo (1961) or the Spanish actress María Bravo (1967). The latter is not only known for her work but also for being Eva Longoria’s best friends and for having been a partner of American actor Bruce Willis.
Bravo, in addition, is the name of a Spanish music group that triumphed in the 80’s. Amaya Saizar, Luis Villar, Yolanda Hoyos and Esteban Santos were the members of this band that achieved more success by representing their country in the Eurovision Song Contest back in 1984. Specifically, they attended it performing the song “Lady, Lady” with which they managed to be in third position.
“Secreto” and “Si supieras” were other singles that sounded the most from this musical group, which disappeared as such in 1986.
Within the field of cinema we also find films that carry the word that concerns us in their titles. This would be the case, for example, of “Fort Bravo”, a 1953 western directed by John Sturges and starring William Holden, Eleanor Parker and John Forsythe.
It is precisely the name of that feature film that today has a western town that exists in Tabernas (Almería) and that highlights the settings and studios in Europe where more films of the aforementioned genre have been recorded throughout history.
