Why A Black Baby Name?

Black Baby

200,000 babies are born worldwide every single day. Can you believe it? Of that number, more than 25,000 of those babies are African, African-American, African-European, etc. Many Black parents, when deciding the names of their babies, want to find ethnic names that have significant meanings in Black culture. They want to preserve the legacy of their ancestors, and they want their child to have a unique and distinct name.

Black names such as Laquesha and Monifah are often criticized for sounding too "ghetto", and names such as Michael and James are criticized for being over used. However, the truth is that any name has it's own value and meaning - and as long the parents approve of it, it's a good name.

This web site, created by the National Registry of Black Baby Names, is designed to help parents find names that are a hallmark of Black culture. Many of the names are commonly used, and some are very uncommon. Some are from African descent, and others are American, Spanish, Hebrew, and even French. Despite this, our collection of names represent the best options to name your child. We hope you enjoy!
