I was watching a documentary on West African names that was released this past year and there was one that stood out to me. The name ‘Kwa Zulu Nama’ was on the list and it was about as big as I’ve ever heard one. I’m not going to lie, I thought the list was going to be longer. In 2019, ‘Kwa Zulu Nama’ is already on the list.
The name is set to become even bigger with the release of the 2020 census. The census shows that name prevalence ranges from 1.7-2.2 percent. And the fact that you only need 15,000 people to reach 4.0 percent for the census tells me that the name is a hit.
The name of Kwa Zulu Nama is not going to go down in history just because it is a small percentage of the names in the census. With the release of the 2020 census, you have an oppurtunity to show the west indigenames that the west is growing and the west is having a resurgence of name popularity as never before. These names make an appearance and those names are going to get bigger in 2022.
In order to have something that people can actually buy, you need to create something that your customers can put money into. The best way to do that is by having a product that is really good. In the case of Kwa Zulu Nama, people can actually use it to make money. So the name is going to have more of a growth than previous names that got big, including Mbongeni Ntshinga, Nandi, and Chinali.
The new census that is expected to provide more government data is going to inform us much more about the names in our country. For example, the name of Kwa Zulu Nama is still the number one name on list but the name itself is set to grow. This is an example of a name that you can go and purchase. But the more you can do with it, even the more opportunity you have to grow it.
As previously stated, Kwa Zulu Nama, a single name on the new census was originally set to have up to 1,000,000 names in the census. But in December 2018, the government decided that the name was going to have 1.7 percent. A growing population and better economy, the census data is going to inform us much more about the names in our government. We will not always be satisfied with the results.
