Have you ever wondered how you were named, and where your name came from?
The “What’s in a Name” project came out of deep reflection when I was expecting my son, and we were discussing how to name him. I realized that I didn’t know many Rwandan names, and for some didn’t really understand their meanings.
My goal is to create a database that I can share with other Rwandans and friends of Rwanda, to work together to preserve a part of our oral history.
