Africa-PressZimbabwe. United Kingdom-based Zimbabwean actress and film director Tanya Fear expressed her pride to be Zimbabwean as she reclaimed her full name Tanyaradzwa.

In a tweet, Tanyaradzwa said she was inspired by Thandie Newton reclaiming her full name.

She said she was given the name because she was born the year her grandfather died.

So inspired by @thandienewton reclaiming her full name.

My full name is Tanyaradzwa~ which means “we have been comforted”, I was named this because I was born the year my grandfather died.

Formerly known as Thandie Newton, the actor said she will reclaim the original Zulu-derived spelling of her name for use in her professional career declaring: “I’m taking back what’s mine.”

Thandiwe means “beloved” in the Zulu, Ndebele and Xhosa languages.
