Introduction

Located in southern Africa, Namibia, which gained independence from South Africa in 1990, is officially known as the Republic of Namibia. To the west of the country is the Atlantic Ocean, while to the north are Zambia and Angola. Botswana is east of Namibia and South Africa is south and east of the country. The country, which is home to around 2.6 million people, is the driest in Sub-Saharan Africa and includes the large, arid Namib Desert. Namibia’s economy is based on agriculture, herding, tourism and mining (for gem diamonds, uranium, gold, silver and base metals).

When seeking the perfect moniker for your canine companion, a closer look at Namibia will introduce you to a number of unique name possibilities; one of which may be just what you are looking for.
