Hi! Portuguese 'criança', from 'criar', to raise, from Latin creo, creare, creaui, creatum. The old spelling is 'creança', as the verb, 'crear'. From the vulgar Latin 'creantia', or from the present participle 'crea:ns, creantis'. It reminds me suckling, and a word Tolkien used on LoTR, but I dont remember it now :/. 'Ris(e/i?)ling' ; ).
