Kwame. I really, really would have loved to have used it but dh wasn't keen and it seemed somehow wrong to use it as it's not from either of our heritages. But I love it.

Keane because (unless I am
mistaken in which case I apologise) the others are invented. I realise that all names were invented at some point, but I'm part of the MN reactionary contingent that dislikes made-up names.

Kwame. Thank you, autocorrect.

Kwame. The others are too 'yoonique'

Kwame. Only ever met one but he was lovely.

Kwame. Kadema is also nice but I don't like the other two.

How about Kian?

Love Kwame, have known 3 who were all lovely. Think I've met a Kadema as well - are they all Nigerian names OP?

I really like Kwame. It has such a nice sound.

Kadema is nice too.

How is Kwame pronounced? Is it Kwam-ay or Kwaym?

RiverTam Fri 02-Sep-16 19:38:23

Everyone will say Kwame as its the only one they'll have heard of. I have no idea if the others are 'made-up' or not. Are they all for a boy, because to my ears Kadema sounds like a female name.

I'm not actually all that keen on any of them.

How about Kadian? It means 'cheerful and charming'.

Are these boy or girl names

In some countries in Africa, Kwame is the name given to a boy born on Saturday.

The others are weird.

I like Kadema and Keandre best.

Yes, Kwame is a Ghanaian / Ivorian day name for a boy born on Saturday.

eyebrowsonfleek Fri 02-Sep-16 20:00:10

I've only heard of Kwame and really like it based on how it sounds and the people that I've met with the name.

I like Kadema.
