Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil is the largest country in both South America and Latin America. At 8.5 million square kilometers (3.2 million square miles) and with over 211 million people, Brazil is the world's fifth-largest country by area and the sixth most populous. Its capital is Brasília.

Your correspondent 'Mark' is correct. The full name of Brazil is 'The United States of Brasil'.

There are legends of the name being used for small islands that... are not there. One such island was off the Western coast of Ireland (spelled Brasil); it had appeared on maps in the early 1300s and finally disappeared before the 1600s. The island itself was never found (and it kept moving from map to map, being as far south as the Azores on one map.
Could it have been imagined a bit further south (off Cape Verde, for example)? I don't know. I have not seen any maps that place it that far south (but that does not prove it never happened).

Brazil isn't an island nor is it in Africa.
Brazil is a very large part of the South American Continent.
An 8 year old should know and not have to ask this.

You are completely wrong on all counts. Brazil is neither small, nor an island nor in Africa.
It is a very large country and is the fifth largest in the world. It also has the world's sixth largest population. It is part of the continental landmass of South America, of which it is the largest country.
