Nhamo- female African name, Mozambique area. Name of the main character in the book A Girl Named Disaster, by Nancy Farmer. According to the book (fiction), Nhamo means disaster. Can anyone verify that?

Arsinoë- female name, ancient Egypt: name of several women in the family of Queen Cleopatra. Does anyone have any information on the etymology, origins, or other uses of this name?
