The Dilemmas of Choosing African American Baby Names

African American baby names vary from the beautiful, traditional names, full of history and meaning – to the downright ridiculous. The problem is the extreme variety of names available and the possible reasons for choosing them.

Probably more than any other group in the US, African American parents are faced with a number of dilemmas when choosing baby names. Should they, for example, reflect a deep and strong cultural heritage, by choosing an African name? African names are drawn from a vast range of languages and cultures, from Bintu to Swahili from Ethiopian to South African. And let’s not forget that northern Africa is largely Muslim, so should an African-American parent adopt an Arabic or Muslim name?

Even non-Muslim African-Americans sometimes use Arabic names, in their original form or as the basis for a variation. For example, Kadeem is an Arabic name (meaning servant) which has proved quite popular for African-American males, helped by the popularity of African-American actor Kadeem Hardison. Jamal is another very popular African American name which is actually an Arabic name, …read more

Self–Love: The Foundation for Implementing Your Dreams

Published by:

Knowing how to love yourself is very important. Self-love is the foundation of our well-being, happiness, self-motivation, joy, contentment, stability, and our ability to create and enjoy the kind of life that we want. We cannot be content and happy, if we are not at peace with ourselves and in love with who God made us to be.

Once we turn our attention inward, we are then able to experience a spiritual connection with ourselves and God. When we experience ourselves as “spirit,” or “one with God,” then we can begin to discover that we are love because God is also love; if we are Christians or God-like, then we are love as well.

Self-Love Starts at the Beginning

If a child is damaged by feelings of insignificance or lack of self-worth, this can set that person up for a lifetime of …read more
