Here's a list of male warrior names for you, Dre. I have taken these names from an book titled: *Names from Africa: Their Origin, Meaning, and Pronunciation* by Ogonna Chuks-orji (Johnson Pub. Co.: Chicago, 1972). At the time of publication, the author of this book was the executive director of Pan Africa House in San Francisco, an association of African and American students which had been established in 1962.
