They reach across regional, geographical and national boundaries and extend identity from the Cushitic to the Muslim world. Somali names, like its language itself, provide their bearers with a sense of oneness in spite of its homogenous ethnicity. In the other hand Somali proverbs play an important role in its people’s daily lives and by definition proverb is a brief saying that presents a truth or a bit of useful wisdom. It is usually based on common sense or practical experience. Thus, this book deals with Somali nomenclature system divided in two parts and Somali proverbs with comparison of non-Somali sayings.
