Oromo name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random Oromo names.

Oromo is a language spoken by over 24 million people living primarily in Ethiopia, but also in Kenya and Somalia. The history of the Oromo people is filled with violence from both their sides and those seeking to rule them, but sources don't always agree. The formation of Ethiopia and the integration of the Oromo people was done peacefully according to some, but violently according to others, for example. Even today the Oromo identity is something seen as integral to Ethiopia, while others see it as lost and in need of revival.

Oromo names are melodic, often based on a meaning like many names in both Africa and the rest of the world at some point, and differences between male and female names can be difficult to spot at first. Male names generally end in an -a, while female names often end in an -e, but this isn't a strict rule and depends on the base word used to create the name.
As far as I know, the father's name is used as a surname, but I couldn't find any conclusive sources on this. If anybody knows of one, feel free to send me a message.
