Is it safe to assume that almost all Hausa traditional names are associated with the events, circumstances, locations etc surrounding the birth of the child?

A lot of them are, but not all. It's the same as in other cultures. In Hausa we have names like Wada (m) and Yalwa (f) which mean 'abundance' and are given to ensure wealth, most English names such as Jane, Mark etc had meanings too, but the meanings have been lost over centuries as the language evolved. The same way some Hausa names such as Yaquled, Turunku, Bakwa, Daurama etc are just plain names to us because their meanings have been lost because that version of Hausa is no longer spoken.

Hey Guys,

Sannun ku. I know its been years since this discussion ended, but I hope at least one or two of you are still online.

I recently began compiling original Hausa traditional names that had no Arabic influence. I've gotten up to 300 names at the moment, and I came across this forum. I totally agree with most things mentioned by Abdallah. I tried accessing your compilation, but it appears it has been removed from the database. I would really like access to this please.

I was going to suggest to admin that an app be created for the site, but nice to see that that suggestion has already been made. I'm a bit nostalgic about the old site and feel, like goga mentioned, maybe a mobile-friendly site might suffice. At least for now. What matters most is for members to come back and be a bit active. An occasional post now and then would go a long way in helping to revive this beloved forum. I have sojourned into the worlds of Twitter, Facebook, Instagram (yes, sadly ???), Google+ etc, but personally nothing beat this place. Maybe I'm old-fashioned like that  ;D

Awwh! i remeber this forum with such nostalgia, very interesting and educating,
I will advice the admin to please maintain the tempo and never let our beloved forum slip into the chaos of contemporary social media frenzy!

Please do maintain the closely nit cycle of brotherhood, maturity and education as it were!
Godbless you all

Yes bakangizo, I think it is just that there are many other ways to do this online at this time, but I think we should still leave it on, if for nothing else but for the Archival value. one can search and see how it was before the age of Facebook and Twitter.
Thanks again.
