It's easy to find African names, but much more difficult to obtain their meanings.
Many come from journals dating back to the 1800's.
Another method we've found helpful is direct interaction with users of our site in Africa who
email us to share names or correct the names and meanings we have.
Over time, we've accumulated names from over 50 African languages.
More complete examples include
Swahili each with over 300 names.
Others have only a handful.
