If you are writing a fantasy story or science fiction.

You will have to name your characters but also fantasize about organizations, religions, races, philosophies, planets, galaxies, nations, and just about anything else you invent!

I cannot fetch you all kikuyu names to use in your story, but my little guide may help you naming ideas, characters, places, and concepts.

1. One of the good ways to name something is to simply change one or two letters of a real or known kikuyu name to create something new.

Which is still recognizable, simple, and memorable.

For example, Sarah could become Saral and so forth; the name Jonathan could be Jolothan.

Here are some kikuyu names examples you can try to change on your own:

Wanjĩra Wairimu

Wanjikũ Wamweru

Nyambura Waceera

Njeri Ng’Endo

Wathira Nyawira

Nduta Mũthoni

Mumbi Wamuhu

Wanjiku Nyakio

Nyagũra Mũrĩnga

Wamũyũ Wameru

Wambeere Wamweru

Wambui Jata

Mũkami Mũmbi

Njambi Wanjirũ

2. Most often fantasy names are usually deeply rooted in the culture and language they come from, like kikuyu names.

For example, In Scottish, mac means “son of”. You may come up with some words that you use as prefix or suffix to convey some meaning and sprinkle it.
