Traditional Somali names

Postby Cumar-Labasuul » Thu Aug 05, 2010 5:48 pm

Seeing as Somalis are using somali names less and less nowadays, lets see if we can name a few traditional female somali names - seeing as how male somali names are very common. The thing is let's see if anybody can name one name of each letter in the somali alphabet (no arabic, english, italian or french names or those that were somali-ized, also no naanaysis i.e. qoordheer :) ), I'll go first:

Btw, I know this is lame but I'm bored big-time :lol:

A - Ardo
B - Barni
C - Cosob
D - Deggan
DH - ?
E - ?
F - Fartun
G - ?
H - Habboon
I - Idil
J - Jinnow
K - Koos
KH - ?
L - Libin
M - ?
N - Nayruus
O - ? I don't think there's any
Q - ?
R - Ruun
S - Saado
SH - Shuun (well it is to some :clap: )
T - ?
U - Ugbad
W - Waris
X - ?
Y - Yusur
