’'Francesco Alvarez, who was a member of the Portuguese mission that arrived in Ethiopia in 1520, mentions two apparently Oromo names in his books. He wrote, ‘’For in our time, which was a stay of six years [1520-1526], there were here four Barnagais [Bahr Negash], that is to say, when we arrived Dori was Barnagais/Bahr Negash; he died, and at his death the crown came to Bulla, his son, a youth of ten or 12 years of age, by order of the Prestor John. The Bahr Negash is a title for the governor of the Red Sea, or present-day Eritrea. Both Doorii and Bulaa are typical Oromo names. Doorii is even more than a proper name; it is one of the names of the Gadaa grades. Bulaa literally means ‘’to spend overnight.’’ When the Portuguese mission arrived in 1520, Doorii was already well into his tenure as Bahr Negash. Later, he was succeeded by his son, Bulaa. Alvarez met these rulers of the Red Sea area, and this is firsthand information that sheds light on the Oromo assimilation and active presence in northern Ethiopia before the first half of the 16th century.’’
