Afrodet is my birth name

Afrodet is the Hebrew-Arabic version of the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite. Zuri is Swahili & Hebrew for beautiful.

Give your daughters difficult names.
Names that command the full use of the tongue.
My name makes you want to tell me the truth.
My name does not allow me to trust anyone
who cannot pronounce it right.

—Warsan Shire
