"I NAMED MY DAUGHTER ZHANE' OR RATHER HER DAD DID. I REALLY WANTED TO NAME HER AHMANI, WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO MEAN FAITH.
HER DAD REALLY WANTED TO NAME HER ZHANE' AFTER THE R&B GROUP. I LOOKED IT UP AND FOUND THAT ZHANE' MEANS BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN SWAHILI. THIS WAS BACK IN 1994/1995. SO I AGREED TO NAME HER ZHANE' AHMANI (FOR BEAUTIFUL FAITH).
I PUT MY OWN TWIST ON IT AN SPELLED HER NAME XHANE' (EVERYONE STILL PRONOUNCES IT WRONG CALLING HER SHANE OR X-HANE OR JANEA . SHE HAS BEEN CORRECTING PEOPLE ABOUT HER NAME SINCE SHE WAS OLD ENOUGH TO TALK. NOTHING FOR NOTHING IM SO HAPPY I NAMED HER THIS NAME. ITS SO BEAUTIFUL AND WE NEVER MEET GIRLS WITH THIS NAME. SHE IS SO UNIQUE AND HER NAME COMPLIMENTS HER.
SHE IS TURNING 18 SOON AND WANTED TO GET A TATTOO FOR HER NAME "BEAUTIFUL FAITH" BUT FOR SOME REASON WE CAN NO LONGER FIND THE SWAHILI VERSION LISTED ON THE INTERNET. 18 YEARS AGO IT WASN'T ENGLISH OR AMERICAN NAME. SUDDENLY THIS HAS CHANGED PROBABLY DUE TO MISINFORMATION CIRCULATING THE WEB.
