Xitsonga Baby Names

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.

What I love about Tsonga baby names is that they are deep, and they mean something. They usually convey a message of some sort also.

If you are looking for a beautiful baby names for boys and girls, and their meanings to get you started:

Xihlamariso – Extraordinary/miracle

Xihluke – to bloom

Nkateko – Blessing

Meehleketo – Thoughts

Hitsakile – we are happy

Hlulani – Conquerer

Andzani – to multiply

Vulombe – Honey

Maninginingi – the pinacle

Tinyeleti – Stars

Katekile – blessed

Akani – to build

Nsuku – gold

Hletela

Ntokoto

Nchuxeko – Freedom

Ngwazi

So now, it’s your turn. Please suggest some Tsonga names that you love. You can even start with your name. Write them below in the comments box

Please guys, ni pfuneni hi mavito ya saseka ya vana.
