  1. “105 Tsonga names…”, personally I thought you would stick to that context as it seemingly sounded as though you would 100% embrace VaTsonga and a bit of the way they do things. David is not a Tsonga name, let alone Zanele and Dikeledi.

     
  2. I remember seeing a phrase that said “not all are Tsonga names, and besides, most Tsonga people have none Tsonga names!!!
