Database of Somali names boys & girls

Hmm this could be a good idea for toy site, "Somali name generator" there's luck of diverse naming within the somali community which sucks, too many abdi's and moes

I might actually go ahead with this next week starting off with all the names here and seed it into db.

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.
Isn't that semitic name? It is sound exactly like ka-hin
Derived from the active participle of كَهَنَ‎ (kahana, “to predict the future”), from the root ك ه ن‎ (k-h-n). Compare Hebrew כוהן‎ (kōhên).

كَاهِن (kāhin) m (plural كَاهِنُونَ‎ (kāhinūna) or كُهَّان‎ (kuhhān) or كَهَنَة‎ (kahana), feminine كَاهِنَة‎ (kāhina))

  1. diviner, soothsayer, prognosticator, fortuneteller, augur, forecaster
  2. (religion, Christianity) priest, father, chaplain, rector, prebend, clergyman, vicar, dominie, curate

Do you guys think that twins should have similar names? i.e. Hassan and Hussein, or Mecca and Medinah?

Me personally, I'd choose 2 that I really like.
