Lions' name game: Ndamukong and Jahvid
ALLEN PARK — Wonder what’s going on with the first names of the Lions’ top two draft picks? We have answers.
DT Ndamukong Suh — “you can call me Suh” — was named after a street in a small town in Cameroon, Africa, where his grandfather was a police chief. It literally means “House of Spears.”
His name is pronounced “En-dom-ah-ken Soo.”
New RB Jahvid Best’s dad used a little creativity for his first name. Jah means almighty in St. Lucia in the Caribbean where his dad David is from. So he combined Jah and the last part of David.
