No, I don't have any official African name; but I have researched several African languages to know my name by my day of birth which was on a Saturday....Many African cultures name sons and daughters by the day of the week they were born. So, as a Saturday child, I could be: Ama, Ameyo, or Ami Some African cultures name children by birth order... So, I could also be: Alaba - means 2nd child born after twins (which I am). It is a unisex name for a boy or a girl. ...or I could be: Kumba - means 2nd girl/daughter (which I am). Nsia - means 6th born child (which I am). I think this one is also unisex.
