Gender: F Meaning of Zuri: "good, beautiful" Origin of Zuri: Kiswahili Zuri's Popularity in 2016: #365

Zuri migrated, at least to American sensibilities, to the feminine side when an Ohio zoo used it for a female giraffe. It cracked into the Top 500 in 2014 and reached Number 365 in 2016, with every indication that it will continue to climb. For either gender, Zuri is an attractive name with the usual Z-initial zest.

Zuri Ross also is a character on the Disney show Jessie. Basketball megastar Lebron James and his wife Savannah named their baby girl Zhuri, a slightly different spelling, in 2014.
