Haile the Hippo

Dessi's animals have Ethiopian names. This is Haile the Hippo, and there is also Dawit the Duckie, and Lemlem the Lion (it's a girl's name; I wanted her lion to have a girl's name.) That's about as far as we've gotten so far. She LOVES the hippo. Laughs out loud at the sight of him.



There is a great and hard-to-find website called: -- it has listings of a ton of Ethiopian names and their meanings.

These pictures make me want to squeeze your daughter a little bit. i was just looking for that website the other day and couldnt find it. I was googling things like, "my brave ethiopian name" I knew there was a brave in there somewhere! Thanks.
