Igbo names for baby girls and their meanings

It is very common for parents to name their baby prior to the birth of their baby. The hospital would also ask for a name to be enrolled into the baby’s birth certificate or the hospital birth register before ever the baby and mom would be discharged. This hospital requirement, the cultural and religious factors including the circumstances surrounding the conception and the birth of a child are mostly what forms parents decision and the choice of a name to their baby.

A name being an integral part of one’s identity is in no doubt a necessity for everyone. However, the Igbo people attach relevant religious or cultural meanings to any names giving to a baby. They sometimes believe that the meaning of one’s name brings good luck or ill luck to the person throughout the person’s existence. This also forms their choice of ensuring that any name given to a baby has this imperative meaning and not just anything for a name!

In the time past, almost all the traditional Igbo people ensured that they named their children in cognisance to any of the four market days in the Igbo Calendar. This is why most Igbo parents have native names such as: (Mgbeke, Mgbori, Mgbeafor and Mgbokwo). These were basically the most common ancient Igbo native names for baby girls while the males were named the opposites of the above-listed names.
