The name is often pronounced 'jhaeb-riy,' which originates from Swahili, an East African language. The meaning of Jabahri is 'brave' or 'fearless.' Derived from the Swahili word Jabari meaning 'brave one,' 'comforter,' or 'bringer of consolation.' The name's origin is associated with the Arabic word Jabbār, meaning 'ruler.' A common variation of the name is Jabari, a popular first name and, sometimes, a surname. Jabahri is a gender-specific given name commonly given to boys. Jabari's variation of Jabahri is famously known for its usage in the 2018 Marvel Studios film 'Black Panther' where the white gorilla cult is collectively known as Jabari. Thus, many people wrongly associate the name with a gorilla. If your boy is brave, able to tackle obstacles head-on, and optimistic, giving him this name would be fitting. A prominent person that bears this name is Jabari Smith Jr, an NBA basketballer.
