Goiania 86th Spacial Birthday .

The most likely origin of the name Goyanna (currently Goiana) is that Goyanna comes from the Tupi-Guarani word "Guyanna", which means "land of many waters".

The first suggestion of name came from Leo Lynce, a Goias intellectual from Pires do Rio. For... Read More...
