I love the name because my best friend's name is Zuri but also I love it because it has a wonderful meaning behind it and when I hear that name it makes me so happy!
My name is Zuri and it's a very wonderful name and beautiful in Swahili. Swahili is a language in Eastern Africa in countries like Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania that's where they mostly use the name Zuri because that's a name from their language which is very special. My name is Zuri, I'm also East African from the country of Uganda where there are the least people named Zuri so my name is kind of rare which is a good thing but I also recognize from the show called Jessie where they were Zuri Ross from Uganda which is insane that we are from the same country, same name, crazy.
I also think of Zuri Ross, for real. Maybe it's just my generation or something because some of us grew up watching Jessie. It's still a very nice name. You may look like a Jessie superfan, but it's nice.
I can only think of Zuri Ross from Jessie.
I can only think of Zuri Ross from Jessie, but the name is cute.
Not a fan at all. I would absolutely hate to be stuck with this name throughout life!
From "Zuri means "white" in Basque. In Swahili it means "pretty". The name is also found with French origin, "charming" and even with the meaning of "princess" in the Indian tradition. Variant: Zury."
Cute, but I associate it with the Disney Channel show Jessie.
Actually, my first name is Zuri however the name meaning is kinda unrelated to me but anyways, I'm the only one in school to have that name :D (exempting Zoey and stuff)
Really pretty.
My cousin, ZURI! I can't wait to tell her what I found on this website about her name. She thinks it's not common at all, and that it doesn't sound pretty or cute!
Isn't this the name of Black Panther's sister?
It's Shuri not Zuri.
Zuri is one of the lion cubs from the Lion Guard.
I absolutely fell in love with the name when we were looking for unique baby girl names. And it fits her perfectly... light skinned, beautiful. My daughter's name is Zuri Jaspré. Uniquely her own.
I like the name's meaning. It's a shame that that stupid Disney Channel show Jessie had to use it.
Reminds me too much of the word "Misery"

My cousin was going to name her child this if she had a girl. Thank god she had a son instead.
I know a man with this name. His mother is from Africa and knew of the meaning before naming him (and will proudly tell people about the meaning). I'm not sure if it's commonly used as a male name or not, but he is certainly a male bearer.
I am absolutely in love with this name.
It is so stunning and simple, I love the overall look & sound of this name.

It's just complete perfection IMO.
I have it on my list paired as Zuri Katherine.
"Good" is a much better translation of the Swahili word than "beautiful."
Zuri Ross is a character on the Disney series "Jessie."
This name sounds pretty. Definitely much better than Suri!
Pronounced Zoo-Ree.
I think this name is gorgeous. Really, even the letters themselves, how the word sounds. All of it is beautiful.
I think this name is awesome! I'm not African but I think I would seriously consider using it anyway. :D.
