Class


Social definitions based on wealth, class and power were always present in varying degrees in Ethiopia, but this has began to change with education and urbanisation. Social stratification is related to the status given to various occupations and wealth. Traditionally the most preferred occupations have been those in government, the military, the clergy and farming. Occupations that have traditionally been despised include metal working, weaving, tanning and pottery. Family names are used for identification and record purposes. Children take their father's names as their second name. When girls marry they change titles, but keep their father's names.
