Hilarious African names That Exists
Africans have a unique way of naming their new born, most times the name signifies event surrounding the birth of the child or it’s simply the parents prayer, hope and wishes for the child.
Some of these names are given in the indigenous native language but in countries like Nigeria, South Africa, Namibia, Zambia, etc they rather give them English names that’ll be easier for you to say “oh this is what happened at birth”.
Unfortunately, not all kids are lucky to be born at bright and merry moments.
For example, these names from Zambia
1. Mavuto to mean problems
2. Mulangani is a Nguni word meaning “punish me”. Or “he who must be punished
1.Apoko Nyang’au to Swahili speakers this, means a dirty dog or bloody brute
2. Wamalwa means that the boy child has been born during the brewing season.
3. Mugeci Mugeci is a lady who loves gossip.
4. Nyambura means born during the rain.
Names are to be carried with pride but some names on this list are just too hilarious that makes you wonder “why.
