My suggestion would be just to go through baby names books/websites/etc. with yoru hubby and discuss names that you like together. Our baby is biracial, and while we don't know what we are having yet, we have already picked out names together. We actually found names we liked by just randomly suggesting them to each other whenever we heard something we liked, whether we were watching a movie or the news or whatever. It's kind of hard, especially if you both like different types of names, but I'm sure if you are both open minded, that you'll find a few names that you both really like. Good Luck! BTW, our girl name is Sydney, my hubby actually suggested it to me because he saw a movie (Brown Sugar) and loved the name. It has grown on me, the more I say it to myself and now I love it as much as he does.

Is he actually from Africa? If so what part? That'd help a lot.

If you can't agree to names then before you find out what you are having compromise and if it a boy he picks first name and you pick middle name and if it is a girl you pick first name and he picks middle name.

I also love Acacia. I believe it's actually an african tree that is refrenced in the bible. I considered it for a long time for my first daughter's name.
