It has more than 100 million inhabitants and contains some of the oldest skeletal remains of ancient people in history. As such, Ethiopia has an extraordinarily long and often tumultuous history but is actually the largest economy in East and Central Africa. The Ethiopians do not use surnames in the conventional sense of the term, so far as names go. The names of the father and grandparents are used to differentiate from those of the same name. The name of the grandfather is used in the same way as conventional surnames for the authentication of foreign documents, such as passports.

Ethiopian names are very popular and come from several sources. The most common is that of a member of an ethnic group and therefore the names of the children are very often names of members of their own ethnic group. The early Beta Israel was mainly decentralized and their religion varied by local community, but they remained loyal to Judaism even after the unification of the ancient, strong Ethiopian kingdom of Aksum with Christianity in the fifth century on, and then they were forced to flee to the area near Lake Tana on the south bank of Lake Turkana in northern Ethiopia, where they founded the new city of Isidore in which they established the largest monastic community in the world. From this point they gradually came together as a community to form the Aksumite Empire, which lasted for around two hundred years.
In the sixth century, the Christian Ethiopian Prince Bishops converted to Islam and this change caused major conflicts with the local rulers who remained loyal to the traditional religious beliefs and practices of the Aksumites. The Muslim rulers were able to impose a form of Sharia law, which included many restrictions of their Old Testament faith, including a ban on the observance of Jewish holidays. This created a large amount of friction with the local inhabitants who were of Jewish descent. It also led to several waves of emigration of Jews to places like Egypt and Syria. When the Christians regained control in Ethiopia, however, many of these Jews were allowed to return home, but others left Ethiopia to join the new Christian state. This influx of Jews to Ethiopia caused much friction between the different ethnic groups and religions, particularly the Muslims who, following the Islamic rule, did not tolerate their presence in the country.
One of the easiest and least difficult names to find a name for is the one that derives from the given name. The name of an individual can be derived from many places, as in the case of a name that derives from the Hebrew root, 'to be' or from a name that is derived from the Arabic root 'to be'. Other possibilities include 'Tahuti', 'Tahybri', and 'Shabri'. As an alternative to such traditional names, parents and grandparents may choose more generic names that have no religious or ethnic ties to their offspring. However, the ethnicity of an Ethiopian remains a significant factor in naming the child. Some parents may wish to give their grandchildren a more generic name that does not have religious connotations, such as 'Araki' which means'son of Ashkelon'.
