Use the space below to share an African name (or two, or three…). Africa, the mother of civilized society, has given birth to millions of lyrical culturally specific names. There is still much name gathering to be done. One of our goals is to have a large searchable database of African names, so that AfrikanNames.com is of value to our visitors. Please contribute to our African name database so African descended people across the world may affirm their African origins by selecting African names.
With work of this type, there will be errors, omissions, oversimplifications, or overgeneralizations.
