Could you please specify the country/tribe the name originates from ? In Rwanda, Imena is a boy’s name and means hero not dream.

This name is so beautiful and I just love the sound. It reminds me of the Arabic name Emina (another pretty name). I have a special place in my heart for Arabic and African names
