Why MarLuso (Mar + Luso)?
The word "mar" which means "sea" has been chosen because Portugal borders on the Atlantic ocean and has always been a seafaring nation.
"Luso" or "Lusitano" is how the inhabitant of the early Portugal was called. According to legend the origin of this Celtic-Iberian tribe is to be found in the "Cova Da Beira" region. The Romans called this province "Lusitânia" (200 AD). And even today "Luso" is used as a synonym for "Portuguese".
