Africa is arguably the most diverse continent on the planet, rich in history and culture, vibrant in faith. While saints from Africa are far less known than those from Europe, there are many saints who lived heroically in service to God all over the African continent, who are worthy of honor and emulation.

So if you’re looking for inspiration for your newborn son’s name, look no further than these remarkable Christian men. From esteemed doctors of the Church and founding desert fathers, to the more recent Ugandan martyrs who willingly gave up their lives for their faith, it would be an honor and an inspiration to bear the name of one of these 15 holy men.
