African-american Baby Names
African Americans are one of the largest of the many ethnic groups in the United States. African Americans are mainly of African ancestry, but many have non-black ancestors as well.
African-American names are part of the traditions of African-American mixed culture. Many Black Americans use names that are popular in American culture although a number of naming trends have emerged within African American culture. Many use their own or their children's names as a symbol of solidarity within their culture.
One very notable influence on African-American names is the Muslim religion. Islamic names entered the popular culture with the rise of The Nation of Islam among Black Americans with its focus on civil rights.
Even with the rise of creative names, it is also still common for African Americans to use biblical, historic, or European names.
