      Non-Hebrew, non-Arabic, non-Greek, non-Latin names

      Many names come from these languages for many reasons (e.g. because of Christianity or Islam becoming popular (Bible was in Greek and in Hebrew and Arabic is related to Hebrew and it is also the language of Quran) etc., or because modern romance languages (French, Italian, Spanish, Portugese, Romanian etc.) come from Latin.

      What are some interesting names from your country, the country of your ancestors, your friends' names or just some you know which don't come from Hebrew, Arabic, Greek or Latin?

      Swahili? Yoruba? Chinese? Japanese? Korean? Indic? Celtic? Germanic? Slavic? etc. (sorry, I can't list all of them)

      Re: Non-Hebrew, non-Arabic, non-Greek, non-Latin names

      I can list some Slavic (in this case Polish) names.

      E.g. Radosław, Mieczysław, Bogumił

      They're funny because they are build from two words. E.g. Bogumił consists of (modified by the grammar) bóg (god) and miły (liked/nice), so it means something like "liked by god".

      What are yours? I think the name Kieran is an Irish (so Celtic) name, right?

      Re: Non-Hebrew, non-Arabic, non-Greek, non-Latin names

      Ishkoobulutunga - A name I invented which comes from nowhere and means 'red faced elbow licker' in Tabulabulu, the language of the Ku'bu'muru'tu tribe.
      "Every position must be held to the last man: there must be no retirement. With our backs to the wall and believing in the justice of our cause, each one of us must fight on to the end."

      Earl Douglas Haig, Order to the British Army, 12 April 1918

      So death, the most terrifying of ills, is nothing to us, since so long as we exist, death is not with us; but when death comes, then we do not exist. It does not then concern either the living or the dead, since the former it is not, and the latter are no more.

      And I assume you're the only member of this tribe, and you invented the tribe as well, a couple of minutes before posting.

      My middle name is Ntongo which is from Cameroon.
