Afro is a Hebrew boy’s name meaning “dust”. Similar to the girl’s name Afra, Afro also derives its meaning from the creation story in the Torah. In this context, however, Afro takes on a more masculine and powerful quality, expressing the strength and resilience of those who rise from the dust. Giving your son the name Afro is a powerful way to honor his connection to the earth and to express your hopes for his strength and resilience.
