Zuma Meaning

taken from:

Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale named their new son Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale. We asked babynames.com founder Jennifer Moss just what the heck it means.

ZUMA it is a short version of the Aztec name, MONTEZUMA, which means “frowns like the Lord,” according to Moss. (Also, Zuma is a popular beach in Southern California.)

NESTA is the original name of Bob Marley, which means it has a Jamaica connection just like Kingston, their 2-year-old’s name. “Perhaps that’s intentional,” Moss says.

As for ROCK, well…that’s what this couple does best! Moss recommends that Zuma bypass the first two names and use “Rock Rossdale.” (However, that does sound a bit like a Flinstones character, come to think of it.)….

I'm 32 years old and married to the best man on Earth! No Doubt is my favorite band, they inspire me everyday. I remember getting my first computer when I was 14 and wanting to make a website about them. Now, 18 years later, I'm a Computer Programmer/Web Designer and STILL making a website about them. I'd like to thank No Doubt for that!
