Zikalala clan names derive from the Zulu people of South Africa. These clan names have been in existence for centuries and help preserve Zulu culture and heritage.
Zikalala clan names are not simply surnames but rather a naming system which honours the Zulu ancestors, and which runs across multiple families.
Izithakazelo Zakwa Zikalala
Wena wase Ngonyameni ,
Wena kamahlomehlathini onjengohlanya
Nina bakwa nyamazane edliwayo , engadliwa nani niyayilahla
Mondi ka ndaba osenhlanganisweni
Sibanda Magoda siwadabula
Mthwebuli wengwebu zabafo
Mpingilizana wakwa Langa
Nina bakwamagwaza indoda inyele emphandeni
Philibane lika Donda elibile lahluthuka ngokweswela abavubeli , baphi abafazi base Khuzeni
