Mensagem:  We might have had better luck if we looked for "xavequeiro." Written with an "x." From what I could find, xavequeiro = 1 : a crook : swindler. 2 : a guy who attempts to escort many, or have several relationships with, girls in the usu. vain hope of proving his manliness for the benefit of all who care to appraise it. Backformation from "xaveco."

The word "xavequeiro" has seemingly had more acceptance in sense # 2 than in sense # 1. Lately.
