"good, beautiful"

Zuri Origin and Meaning

The name Zuri is both a boy's name and a girl's name of African, Kiswahili origin meaning "good, beautiful".
Zuri migrated, at least to American sensibilities, to the feminine side when an Ohio zoo used it for a female giraffe. 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.
