    My husbands mother was Afrikaans. My favorite Afrikaans girls names are:

    Asha, Annika, Diara, Imani, Lina
    I like simple yet versatile names that work well for the athlete, the comic, the genius, and the judge.

    goodkarmavt; Thanks for the link. Some of the names are misspelled though (for example Eleonara should be Eleonora).

    paw; My partner says none of those names are Afrikaans except Annika and Lina. Thanks anyway. I like Lina.

    tori101; Thanks. I like Klara (prefer Clara), Rosalie, Saskia, Lieve and Anja. Though my partner says that in Afrikaans Lieve is a term of endearment rather than a name. Oh well.
