Unique Xitsonga Baby Names for Boys and Girls

xitsonga-baby-namesWhen I was born back in the 70’s, and I was named Xihlamariso, back then my name was a super unique Tsonga name, and in all honesty, no one had that name as I was growing up. It’s only now that I find people with my name, and they are all younger than me!

So, big ups to my parents for my awesome unique Tsonga name . . . I love it as it encompasses all that I am. I am extraordinary, which is what my name means. Some choose to say it means a miracle, which is true, because I am truly one!

I wanted to look at beautiful and unique Tsonga baby names for boys and girls, for those moms-to-be who may need help in choosing beautiful Tsonga baby names for boys and girls.
