Zulu name generator

This Zulu name generator will generate 10 names with their meaning in brackets.
Most names are unique to one gender, but there are quite a few unisex names.

The Zulu are the largest ethnic group in South Africa. Their population is about 10-11 million strong.

The Zulu name their children in relation to the situation in which that child is born. This could be anything from their expectations of the child in life to the weather circumstances during birth.

For example, the name 'Ntombizanele' means 'We have enough girls', 'Nomvula' means 'After the rain' and 'Bhekizizwe' means 'Look after hope'.

Many Zulus are given two names, which further reflects their expectations or the story behind their birth.
However, in this generator it only shows 1 name at a time instead of a combination of 2, which is mainly to promote readability, because the meanings of the names make it harder to read 2 names together.

To start, simply click on the button to generate 10 random names. Don't like the names? Simply click again to get 10 new random names.
