Mandinka name generator
This name generator will give you 10 random Mandinka names and surnames.
Mandinka is a language spoken by the Mandinka people of West Africa and descendants of the Mali empire. The majority live in Gambia, Guinea, Mali and Ivory Coast, and their total population is about 13 million according to a 1996 census.
The vast majority of Mandinka people today are Muslim, which is reflected in their names. Besides often having Muslim names, they also have African versions of Muslim names alongside the more traditional Mandinka names. I focused mostly on these latter two as there's already a separate Muslim name generator available on my site.
