Somali name generator

This Somali name generator will generate either 10 male or female names depending on your choice.

Somalia is a country in the Horn of Africa, which is in the East of Africa. It has a population of only about 10 million, the majority of whom are ethnic Somalis.
The vast majority of Somalis are Muslim and their official languages are Arabic and Somali. This heritage is also reflected in their names, which don't seem to have as many cultural influences from outside as many other African nations do.

Many Somali names also don't seem to have a specific meaning, which includes both ethnic Somali names and names with cultural influences from outside. There are some names which do have a meaning, but I haven't included those meanings in this generator.

As for surnames, the Somali people don't have surnames like many other cultures do. Instead they use the father's and grandfather's name to identify a person. So if you're looking for surnames simply pick 2 male names and you're good to go.

To start, simply click on the button to generate 10 random names. Don't like the names? Simply click again to get 10 new random names.
