    usually, the names are in references to locations in Rio (as far as I know).

    Salgueira and Mangueira, incidentally, are the portuguese names of two trees. Salgueiro means Willow Tree. Mangueira is a Mango Tree. Salgueira Samba School comes from the Morro do Salgueiro (Willow Tree Hill) and Mangueira from the Morro da Mangueira (Mango Tree Hill).

    Unidos da Tijuca: Tijuca United (Tijuca is a region of Rio and is a word of indian origin which I dont know what means)
