“One thing that sets this book apart from other name books is that it makes clear that it’s not just for babies.” - Los Angeles Times
“There is a lot more to Dr. Askhari Johnson Hodari’s book than its list of more than 5,000 African names. The book is also about the meaning of names, the power of names to change us, the role of names in connecting people to their histories, the expectations that
names inspire, and the way names reflect the cultures that create them. On every level, this book succeeds.”
- Betty DeRamus, author of Freedom by Any Means and Forbidden Fruit: Love Stories from the Underground Railroad
