Not a fan :/
And just when I thought I had seen it all.
Guys,Affrika IS a real name!It's Irish!There was more than one queen(is that the correct term?) of Ireland named Affrika,amongst other spellings.Of course,most parents aren't aware of this and merely intended it to be Africa in a kree8tivf fashion,but PLEASE try and learn everything about a name before judging it!I'm honestly not trying to call anyone stupid or anything like that,but it really irks me when someone disses a name without finding out more about it.Of course,I can understand why you would diss it,but still.Again,I didn't mean to offend anyone(and I also have to say Afrique is kinda horrible).
This is a name. It isn't just a jumbled-up spelling.
Not Africa. Just weird spellings like Affrika, ew.
I went to high school with an African-American girl named Africa. We were in French class together and the teacher said our names as they would be pronouced in French, so she was called "Afrique" which does sound like "A-freak".
How in the world is this racist? Is it a derogatory term? Is it Ladasha? No. No, it is not. It's a real name that's been used for centuries.
Who would even call their child this... like this isn't racist -_- But would an African couple name their children this? I don't think so. So why would someone else name their child this. This name I reckon will not be used at all.
You said Bazinga. You have my respect. :)
Oh my gosh. Honestly, what is so bad about just Africa?
This is dangerously close to becoming 'A-Freak-A'
I'm sure their parents just didn’t know how to spell it - BAZINGA! I have no IDEA wth people are thinking sometimes...
'...I bless the rains down in Affrika
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had...'
