    I found this on reddit

    Kaahin= Kaah, which is synoymous with Ilays or Iftiin. Usually this name is given to someone who born early dawn or sunrise. A synoymous name with Kaahin is the name Waabari. The feminine name of Kaahin is Kaaha.

    Great list guys. Now if only we could look into the meaning behind them.
    If someone has the book Abtirsiinta erayada af Soomaaliga, please, search their meaning and share with us.
