LOL i have no idea. I was just randomly looked up African names and i came across that one and i kind of liked it. I don't remember what it means. The reason why i wanted an African name was because he's an African parrot. Senegal are native to well Senegal in Africa but also are found along Mali,Niger, Chad area. Also i heard there are some species in parts of South Africa.aww he is lovely, where did you get his name from.
