''Greenfield notes that Oromo dismiss talk of being newcomers and apparently consider themselves as inheritors of the traditions of Axum. Asmarom points out the existence of Oromo first names amongst Habesha and argues that one cannot easily divide what is "Amhara" from what is ' 'Oromo' ' even in this part of Ethiopia.''
