Xhosa Clan Names
From Wikipedia, "Xhosa clan names are family names which are considered more important than surnames...Each Xhosa person can trace their family history back to a specific male ancestor or stock...Mentioning the clan name of someone you wish to thank is the highest form of respect, and it is considered polite to enquire after someone's clan name when you meet them."
