Be careful what name u give your child, they will encompass the character of that name.

Most of these are (((Hebrew))) names, not ''English'' or ''Western''.

Don't be a slave to the chosenites.
 
I would give them unique Somali names with Hebrew origin/ that are easily anglisced.

Adan/Adam
Ilyas/Elias
Zahra/Sarah
Mariam/Maria
Yaqub/Jacob
Elmi/Elmi
Nuh/Noah
Etc


Gotta be a faithful realist :manny:
 
You should think of three things when you name your child;

1. A name that is easy to pronounce will make their life easier in social settings and in school/work etc.
2. A name which has historical reference that may aspire them to do good.
3. A name which doesn't rhyme with bad words or can be twisted easily to mean something rude. For example, a Bengali friend of mine was called Mahboob, you can take a wild guess what people did with his name :bell:
