Girl Names of Swahili language or origin

Swahili names for baby girls, with 295 entries. Swahili is spoken widely by many people in Eastern and Central Africa, being the national language of Tanzania, Kenya and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Swahili names that have found a following within western popular culture have the distinction of being edgy and unique. For example, the name Zuri, has shot spectacularly up the baby name ranks since American Basketball star LeBron James called his daughter Zhuri, which is a spelling variation of Zuri, meaning beautiful.
