Unusual First Names Of Zimbabweans ....

Around the middle of the 20th century many Zimbabwe (at the time the country was an English colony called Rhodesia) African parents began to give their new born babies very unusual English first names, a tradition that still continues today.




The list of names below is real and belongs to mostly well known personalities in Zimbabwe (politicians, soccer players, artists, as well as ordinary people).

Today in Africa, the first and most famous name that comes to my mind that would fit really nicely into the relatively short list below, would be of Goodluck Jonathan, the President of Nigeria

Marvellous Mhlanga-Nyahuye
Lovemore Matombo

Saviour Kasukuwere
Sixpence Dlamini
Evidence Manyere

Fortune Mpofu

The last 5 names were from a Zimbabwe maternity records list showing some strange names given to new born babies during and after an election period.
