Meaning:Sultan, emperor
If you're looking for an epic way to honour baby's African heritage, why not give them a name with some serious girl power? Short for Mandinka, Mansa means "sultan," "emperor," and "third born child." This mighty name is most commonly tied to the Keita dynasty in western Africa's region of Mali. You can expect baby to show some early signs of being a natural-born leader—formerly known as bossy—so prepare for some spirited babbling.
