N'Dour (also Ndure, Ndour, or Ndur ) is a typical Gambian and Senegalese patronym of the Serer people. They are the same people but because the French colonised Senegal and the British colonised the Gambia, there are variations in spelling but pronounced the same way. They share the same surname with the 15th century Serer King of Saloum Maat Saloum Mbegani Ndour (reigned from 1494) also known as Mbegan Ndour.
