Edison "Edson" Arantes Do Nascimento or Pelé was born in a poor family.  His parents, Dondinho and Dona Celeste Arantes, named him after the American inventor, Thomas Edison, however they decided to remove the ‘i’ and call him ‘Edson’. Many documents showed his name as "Edison", not "Edson". It’s because there was a mistake on the birth certificate. His family originally nicknamed him Dico.
He received the nickname "Pelé" because of his pronunciation of the name of his favorite player, local Vasco da Gama goalkeeper Bilé, which he misspoke but the more he complained the more it stuck. The word ‘Pelé’ has no known meaning in Portuguese.
