African Baby Names

Being a massive continent, Africa has many languages divided into hundreds of regional dialects. Baby names in Africa are also being influenced by African native languages, including Hausa, Zulu, Yoruba, Swahili, Shona and Kongo. The common African baby names reflect religious and political beliefs. They vary from one region to another, like the people living in the north of Africa are Muslim and inclined towards Arabic names.
