Hi mmdero.
First of all welcome to the Forum . A friend has reliably informed me that 'Jantoni ' is the zulu pronunciation of John Dunn .
ie , '' Jan - ' John ' , ' toni ' = Dunn .
cheers 90th. Idea .

Jantoni is definitely the Zulu pronounciation of John Dunn. Similarly, the Norwegian mission at Eshowe was known as kwaMondi - "The Place of Ommund", named after The Rev Ommund Oftebro. Rorke's Drift was known to the Zulus as kwaJimu - "The Place of Jim" (James Rorke). Regards, Ken

Thank you Mr. Gillings. This forum is proving to be an excellent resource in addition to the books and DVDs in my possession for the historical novel that I am writing. I was just today researching the site of Eshowe which mentioned the kwaMondi mission, so that was somewhat coincidental you mentioned it, too as one of your examples. I have a good understanding now, of kwa = the place, and Jan = John, and Toni = Dunn, Jimu = Jim, and etc.
