Afrikaans term or phrase: Echezona
All I know is that it is supposed to be an Afrikaans word but what does it mean?As a name.
Lori Hunt
English translation:probably not an Afrikaans word
Explanation:
Can you tell us where you heard that this is an Afrikaans word? Did you not perhaps think it is an African word? The letters "ch" does not appear in Afrikaans words except in a few cases. The "z" is also not a frequent Afrikaans letter. Futhermore, the "ona" at the end of the word is very rare in Afrikaans.
