Mailmalc
why aint you proud of the name your parents gave you? undecided

Africans have African names

English have english names

Though some Christian Parents give their kids English names and Muslim Parents give their kids name from the Quran . . it makes no big difference Jo
be proud of ur name with meaning na cheesy

I have an English name as a first name but was always wished I had a Naija first name instead of middle names. So please be proud of yours okay? Anyway if you were Christian you would add a middle name that was biblical when you are confirmed - but i am not going to assume your faith. One name I love alot is Gabriel I would like to name one of my future sons this but every Gabriel ihave met has been wayward and I am not sure if something is linked to the name. Anyway that is a Jewish name. Why don't you think of someone who inspires you to use as a name i.e.

Martin Luther King
Nelson Mandela
Malcom X
Bill Gates (that is William)
Donald Trump
George Bush (whoops sorry, lol)
Michael Jordan (why not?)
Morris Chestnut, Tyson Gibson, Tyrese, (sorry forgot this was about you)

If you are Christian however, biblical names are always a good option.
Malachi is a cool name, Jason, Adam too!

Good luck!
