"I'm in my twenties and I am a female. Zaire is my name! I have never been more proud about anything in my life than my name, it is VERY unique. I've never come in contact with anyone male or female with the same name. People do often mispronounce it., however people usually over 35 know it was a country and revel at its uniqueness. My mother told me to pronounce it Za-Ear, and people often couldn't. She mostly pronounces it Zi-Ear. When people try to pronounce my name, they either say Zi-Ear or the worst which i hate Zi-Air. But its always a conversation starter and people always remember me. Not just because of my name , but because I am the total embodiment of it. I am power, unique, and like I used to yell at all the kids who made fun of my name "I'm a QUEEN." lol" Oct. 13, 2014:

"Hi My name is Zaire and I'm 20 years of age majoring marine and environmental science. Every since I was eight till now, I would always receive positive feedback on my name and people would always ask me "why did your parents name me Zaire". I would just say that the name was given to me because they know I am strong and the name is strong, meaning beautiful river or tend to be very active. This describes me They love to travel and hate to sit around in the same spot for too long. They are bold, daring, and persuasive. They love to try new things and take chances.

"Might be fine if related to the real estate, but as a nation its present and past embody all that is barbarous and regressive.
For a boy is is too soft and is needlessly hampered by guaranteed vowel inversion and misspellings: zaire ziare. Moreover, Americans are less able than ever to manage pronunciation of odd words/terms." Oct. 26, 2013:

"Well my 14 year old daughter embodies the name, and I had to be extra difficult I chose to spell it with an ? X? similar to how Xerox is spelt. She gets ?X-here? a lot but she just corrects them and then she gets told how beautiful her name is. Our family name is Malcolm so when she is asked for he last name and firs initial she is Malcolm X. Like I said she embodies the mane, Xaire is strong willed, independent, adventurous, smart and beautiful. Zaire is also a unit of money and so I equate the name with prosperity as well."
