The Amazighs, known as the Berbers, are an ethnic group that lives in North Africa. This generator will produce 15 random Amazigh (or Berber) names. Most live in Morocco and Algeria, but can be found in much of North Africa and in many communities throughout Europe. Despite their popular heritage, the Amazighs will vary a lot depending on where they live. Diverse cultural influences have left their mark throughout history and, in many ways, the only thing that brings the Amazighs together under a common factor is their language. Many Amazighs tend to have Arabian or Muslim names, probably due to the Muslim conquest of North Africa. In certain cases their first names are also very special in their own language, and in some cases they have a meaning. However, we decided that these meanings should be left out of this generator because most of the names have no significance or no established significance to add to us.

The Berber population live in dispersed communities throughout Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, and Niger. They speak several different Berber languages belonging to the African-speaking family related to early Egyptian. These are called Arabic, Farsi, and the other Berber language dialects. In addition, some of them also speak Italian, French, and German. This is the main reason why they are often referred to as Berbers. Some of them live in Tunisia, while others live in Libya. In North Africa, Berber is the third most spoken language.
One of the main reasons why these people are called Berber is the fact that they wear a head wrap which resembles the head covering used by the Egyptians. This head wrap is referred to as a hit. This hija is made of woolen fabric and worn over the head as a head covering. The name "hija" is derived from the Berber term "Hijara" which means head cover. The hija was not only used for protection, but also to improve a person's appearance.
There are many cultures related to Berber. There are people who call themselves Berbers even if they do not belong to this particular group. In addition, there are people who consider Berber names as their real identity. A Berber man may adopt the name of his brother, or the mother. Women, on the other hand, use the name of their husband. However, there are also people who adopt the name of their own parents.
