It’s time to count your blessings! Baraka is a gender-neutral name of Swahili origin. Meaning “blessings,” this special moniker has become popular in recent years thanks to its similarity to the name Barack (a forename that may ring a few bells). Baraka is also the name of a character in the iconic fighting game Mortal Combat. While your little Baraka may share their name with this character, that’s where the similarities end. Mortal Combat’s Baraka is a ruthless villain, while your cherub is destined to be blessed with a delightful disposition.
