"My name is Semaj, born in 1974, so im one of the old ones! :-D Alot of people don't know what the name means nor its origins, we assume that its origin is simply from the name James being in the English language, backwards spells Semaj, but that is not solely the case. One could calm the name Semaj has many origins that spans centuries from Europe to Africa to the Middle East, and they would be right. But the oldest and closest name to Semaj is the Hindu or Indian word Samaj pronounced the same, meaning church or place of worship. Semah or Sema, is a name found all over the continent of Africa and means anything from "Hello" to "Assistant, helper". Also the name which many believe is the origin of the name Semaj is found in the Ancient Greek/Egyptian era, and according to the story the name Semaj means, "the keys of solomon". Also i found some years ago through some African research the name meant something similar to Bravery, I lost the meaning over the years so I decided to define the name myself and the meaning according to me means "Bravely inspired" and I believe every person whose name is Semaj should walk with this meaning and allow it to become them so that this name and its New African American inspired meaning will Bravely Inspire us to change our existance our lives and those around us, that is our calling- Semaj "Bravely Inspired"!

"Hi my mane is Semaj. People misspell my mane and mis pronounce my name all the time. Its pretty kewl. I get poeple wanting to know how to speel and how to say it all the time. It gives me a laugh every now and then when people try and say it in school. I like the name because it different and the kewl nicknames you get. so far the nicknames i have now is Maji, Semaji, Samage, Sausage, haji, and a couple more i can't think of right now. but Its been able to get sweet jobs and stuff and i just love it.

"I named my son SEMAJ on March 19, 2001. His dad, my dad and his other grandpa all are named JAMES. Because his dad and I were not married or even together, for that matter, I didn't want to go through the hastle of giving a Roman numeral behind his name. So, to make things easier I spelled JAMES backwards. We call him MAJI for short. People pronounce his name wrong at first until the hear the story behind the name." Aug. 31, 2005:
