Many cultures in Africa believe that a name determines the destiny of the bearer which is why names are considered the first gift (or curse) a child receives. Even if you are not deeply religious or traditional, If you believe in the laws of attraction and affirmations then you can understand the value of names. Some names therefore attach certain expectations on bearers. A child named 'Naborhi', which means 'born with good destiny', is expected to be very successful.

Oh yes !! It is fascinating the way the stories , ideologies cross this distance and barrier ... the aspired qualities are attributed to the celestial beings - example "Arindam" means one who has won all his enemies and is one of the many names of Krishna and Shiva .. Is it the same over there as well?

I am supposed to be the consort of Indra - the king of the gods ..the source of jealousy ( *looks skeptical) and apparently a beauty without compare ( *howls in laughter)....
Laughs aside - this is a beautiful work ..

It is fascinating that different cultures separated by language and geography can come up with similar ideologies.
