Blacks create these names because we were stripped of the rights of our birth names.  Trying to separate ourselves still from the slave name that was given to us.  I know the names are something at times and make you shake your head why but at the same time we are still on the hunt trying to find who we are and where we come from.  Thus making us be the creative people that we are.  We will one day get it right I believe.
