The director of the New York Times branch in Brazil, Jack Nicas, announced that after 34 years the main American and world newspaper will no longer call Lula “Mr. da Silva”, but “Mr. Lula”.

It was “after a lot of internal discussion”, explains Nicas via Twitter:

“When I arrived in January, I realized that this [Mr. da Silva] it looked strange. He is universally known simply as Lula — and any Brazilian will tell you: ‘da Silva’ is the most common surname in the country. But we don’t call people by their nickname. well Lula was your nickname. He made it his legal last name years ago. And he’s used it as his main surname ever since.”
