Woolworth commissioned the Woolworth Building in 1910 with the intent of his namesake building to be the tallest in the world. The 13 million dollar project was financed in cash by Woolworth which allowed him freedoms in the design and construction of the ornate, gothic building.

Name Meaning

Portuguese: habitational name from any of the numerous minor places called Amaral. The place name is of uncertain etymology, probably from the term amaral, denoting a kind of black grape (from Latin amarus ‘bitter’). Alternatively, the origin may be a collective noun derived from Spanish maro, amaro ‘cat-thyme’ (Latin marum, influenced by Spanish amargo ‘bitter’).
