He was given the name to inspire America during
World War II. He was a volunteer in the super soldier

Captain America's Name

The formal explanation is that the creator thought there were too many “Super” heroes; the more complicated analysis has to do with saving wartime America with a hero created from a less-than-average, frail guy, who, with the aid of the US Government, rose to the occasion and beyond. The name means he’s us, however ordinary, vanquishing whatever’s thrown at him, more with courage than super power.

Name: Guiseppi

Name: Guiseppi Protacio

He’s wearing some stars and stripes which obviously represents America generally. Therefore it feels right that the US government calls him or gives him the nickname “Captain America”. The “America” stands for the symbol he represents, be it his costume and shield. Not to mention that he fights for ‘freedom, ‘liberty’ and ‘justice’. The “Captain” name on the other hand was simply because he was promoted among all the Super Soldier candidates.

Historically during the character’s publication: The writer Joe Simon was originally going to name him “Super American”, but he felt that there are lot of characters already who has “Super” on their titles.

    CHICAGO – The State of Hawaii may be one of the most misunderstood in America. Because of its reputation as a tourist mecca, the fact that native peoples live and work there like any other place is hard to imagine.

    CHICAGO – Has anybody in show business had more “comebacks” than Cher… or if you added her many last names Cher Sarkisian La Piere Bono Allman? All of the triumphs and downturns are shoehorned into “The Cher Show,” now in Chicago in a pre-Broadway run through July 15, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
