Every thing ever one else is saying with the correction of one thing, he was not named nomar because his fathers name was ramon, and if ramon was backwards it would be nomar. Nomar Garciaparra's father's name is Amancio Garciaparra. So this cannot be the explanation of Nomar's name.
Its a huge rumor, especially in boston
Nomar Garciaparra is one of the best short stops in baseball. A fan favorite in Boston for years until he was upset that they tried to trade him for A-rod. At the 2004 trade deadline, the Sox traded Nomar in a multi-team deal to Chicago.
A great short stop rumored to be traded to the Chicago Cubs. Was named Nomar because his father's first name is Ramon, which spelled backward happens to be Nomar. His brilliant career in Boston took a swift turn when in the offseason following the Sox's Game 7 loss to New York he was put on the trading block in a multiple player swap for Alex Rodriguez and Magglio Ordonez.
Nomar Garciaparra arguably is a future hall of famer.
