bros, i think i will just stick to ibo and yoruba names (since i understand both), in fact rather than me reading through everything u wrote in the quest of naming my child, i might just use gemstones like onyx, emerald, tourmaline, diamond... etc (at least they are of great worth). Guy, there is no time for Hebrew classes.....

and yes! u can also use your favorite movie character eg.. django (the d is silent), or Captain Whip Whitaker...
