Zulu Baby Names - Male

Guest Author - Jeanne Egbosiuba Ukwendu

Zulu children are named before they are born. Babies are named depending on circumstances or relationships in the family. The Zulu tribe doesn't have a naming ceremony, but rather a ceremony called imbeleko to introduce the new baby to the family's ancestors.
