Can someone help this reader? Quelqu’un pourrait-il aider cette lectrice?

Amahoro! (this post is especially for Burundian readers)

So, a reader replied to my unexpectedly popular Survival Kirundi post from last spring, and sent me the following comment:

I am actually having a baby…American mom, Burundian father, and would love some more name ideas from those on the list! …words that won’t be TOO difficult for a child growing up in America, but also representing her identity from Burundi. Light, love…I’m open to suggestions! Thank you!

Could someone possibly suggest an izina for this little girl on the way? Friends from This Burundian Life, maybe you can help?

Je viens de recevoir un commentaire sur mon cahier de conversation anglais-kirundi en ligne, d’une femme aux Etats-Unis qui va bientôt être maman d’une petite américano-burundaise. Elle démande poliment à la communauté de l’aider à chercher un izina pour sa fille. Un mot pas trop long avec une belle signification. Des suggestions?
