Rate this:
A wide selection of first and last names from more than 25 African countries. From Abadeet to Zoan, the book offers names for Africans to use for their children or to substitute for previously given Western names. Unlike most Western names, African names are loaded with meaning. Evolved over countless generations, they may signify when a child is born, mark the circumstance of a pregnancy or birth, or indicate the state of the community in which the child is born.
