Dr. Askhari Johnson Hodari

What I appreciated about my Featured “Book of Color” Pick of the Day is that in The African Book of Names it is more than just a list of 5000 African names. There is a meaning behind each name and it is apparent that the author, Dr. Askhari Johnson Hodari, put a lot of time and attention into choosing each and every one of these names.

More than just a baby book, it is noted that many prominent people in history changed their names later in life. People such as Sojourner Truth, Muhammad Ali and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar all took names as adults.

Dr. Hodari is also one of the most sought-after experts on African names and for over 20 years has consulted in the naming and or renaming of hundreds of babies, children and adults.
