KJ is spending time with Grandma and Nanna whilst his parents are away for the week. He is intrigued by a picture of a little baby with his mum and dad. The question of "What is My Name?" comes up when KJ learns that the photo was the day of his naming ceremony. In this story, Grandma and Nanna explain KJ's Nigerian and Ghanaian names whilst helping KJ understand the decision and thought process behind each given name. "What Is My Name?" is written to help kids and others understand the cultural significance that having an African or multicultural name has on the child and their families identity. The power a child gets from calling or hearing an African name is an upliftment of self-esteem and confidence. Such names help to reaffirm the richness of a child's heritage and the cultural diversity that surrounds them.
