The Name Game

Three things about names in Senegal:

#1. Senegal has weird names. The most common name for women is Fatou, which is also the Wolof word for “death”. I haven’t deciphered the meaning. Some men are called Magget, the Wolof word for old person”. Why someone would call a baby “Old Person” is beyond me
