"Zaire" is derived from the Portuguese word "Zaire", which is an adaptation of the Kongo word "nzere" or "nzadi," which mean "the river that swallows all rivers."

I love Zaire on a girl. Why did 28 percent vote it as masculine when it was a female name since the 1700s. Zaire Beatrice is what I would use.
