Kenyan Names

If you’re looking to honor your Kenyan heritage, browse our collection of Kenyan baby names for boys and girls. Among the Luo and Luhya tribes of Kenya, serious consideration goes into the choice of name, as it is believed the baby will adopt the traits of the person it has been named after. In Kenyan naming practices, a child’s first name is a traditional “Western” name (from US or Europe, for instance). Then, a second name is given that refers to the circumstances of their birth: time, weather, day of the week. If you are looking for a traditional East African name for your baby, look no further than our selection of Kenyan baby names.
