At today’s ultrasound we found that we’re having a healthy, big and tall boy. (I can’t believe its been 20 weeks already!) I must say that it came as quite a suprise because in my mind I had decided that we’re having a girl. Don’t know why but that had been my intuition. oh well. so much for women’s intuition. Perhaps it was just me wishing…. Good thing I hadn’t painted the nursery pink!
Now comes the fun part of picking names. Mzee and I are picking a Swahili first name then each of the grandfathers get to pick out one middle name and then he’ll keep mzee’s last name for his last name. Yep, this unfortunate cross cultural kid will get loaded down with four names total.
Mzee and I had so much settled into thinking that its a girl that we had picked out the girl name: Naima. Boy names are harder. We’ve got a short list of swahili boy names none of which we’re thrilled about. we’ve already considered Fadhili, Tumaini, Taraji, Jabari and Johari and none of those are really working well for us.
So Swahili speakers out there: What are your suggestions for swahili boy’s names. Help!!
