Other information
NAME
His parents planned to name him Daniel until his godfather suggested the name Ronystony. Although he is not completely sure of its origins, he suspects it may be a Brazilian slant on the name of British rock band, The Rolling Stones. "It seems that my godparents put a Brazilian twist on the name. Some say it is an odd name but I think it is beautiful. If I had a son, I would give him this name too. But since I have two daughters, it was not possible." (esportes.terra.com.br, 15 Aug 2013)
