Meaning of the baby name SIMBA.


SIMBA.  African Swahili name meaning "lion."  The American author Stewart Edward White wrote a novel set in Africa entitled Simba, the name of the story's main character.

... The ugly but attractive young savage stepped from the ranks of the bodyguard.
     "The Bwana M'Kubwa wishes to thank you," said Kingozi.
     "Assanti, bwana."
     "What you did was good.  Did you not know that these people would think you an enemy and kill you?"
     "That thought came to me, b'wana."
     "Were you not afraid?"
     "A long time ago, bwana, it happened that you yourself cut from a dead lion a piece of fat, and with it you touched my forehead and my heart, and you said these words:  'The lion, simba, is bravest among beasts.  Remember that this magic will make it possible for you to be the bravest among your companions'; and so it comes that I feel no fear."
     Kingozi's brow knit, then cleared.
     "You were then a child," he said, "I remember.  You stood before the lion with your spear.  Your name is Simba." (Simba, White, 1918)
