Final Research Paper

In a numbered table, list twenty (20) personal names and their meanings from ONE African ethnic group. (NB: Due to our class coverage of Asante/Ashanti and Yoruba names, students are NOT allowed to do research on the Asante/Ashanti or the Yoruba for this assignment.) You must name the group; the country or countries in which they can be found in significant numbers; give their population numbers, and any relevant ethnographic information that is significant for the people. You must have an equal number of male names as female names, although you can have any number of “unisex” names (such as Stacy, Tracy, or Jan in the English language).

You MUST cite the sources of your information on a separate page at the end of your paper including either book or journal sources (in addition to your undoubted use of Internet sources, which should be kept to a minimum). On the title page of this paper you must include the following five pieces of information

The essay portion of this research must include: 1) a description of the baby naming ceremony of the group you have gathered the forty names; 2) a discussion of special names within this culture (e.g., twins, or those who are born following the death of a previous child in the family, etc.); and/or 3) an elaboration on the context of the naming ceremony, including, who names the child, and if there are any discernable naming patterns.

Students may use books on African names (which are plentiful); interview an African who is knowledgeable about the naming traditions, and is fluent enough with the language and traditions to give you forty names AND their meanings; the Internet; journal articles, etc. Whatever source you use, you MUST cite the source or sources of you information in each case. For this reason, there must be a bibliography on a separate page at the end of your paper. Those students who use the Internet exclusively and/or do not cite their sources, will not be considered suitable for grading, and will receive no points for this part of the final.
