Choosing an African name

Choosing the name of a baby is highly important. In Africa this is perhaps more so as it is believed that the actual choice of name can influence the the life of both the child and the family. An over ambitious name could have significant repercussions whereas a simple name will not carry such high expectations. Names reflecting the day of birth and the environment or circumstances surrounding the birth are common.

Names in African cultures are pointers to their users’ hopes, dreams and aspirations; they may reflect their users’ geographical environments, their fears, their religious beliefs, and their philosophy of life and death. Children’s names may even provide insights into important cultural or socio-political events at the time of their birth. The circumstances surrounding a child’s birth may be considered when a name is being chosen.

In ancient African cultures, names held a mesmerizing mystique, which has carried over to many contemporary baby-naming celebrations.
