Origin of the name KAFFIR.
Etymology of the name KAFFIR.
Meaning of the baby name KAFFIR.

  

KAFFIR.  Of Arabic origin.  Although later considered an offensive term for a black person, especially in South Africa, this was first a neutral term for a black southern African person.

... The Kaffirs sometimes call themselves Amakafula.  This name is evidently a corruption of Kaffir (Unbeliever or Infidel), the term applied by the Mahometans to those who are not of their faith... (Fifty Years of the History of the Republic in South Africa (1795-1845), Voigt, 1899)
