The Igbo people who are from the Southeastern part of Nigeria do not only define a name as a person’s identity and individuality. They most often name a baby according to the circumstances following the conception and the birth of a particular child. This is because the Igbo people are highly religious yet very tenacious to their cultural practices and heritage.

Igbo Baby Name: Unisex Igbo names and their meanings
Igbo Baby Names and their meanings

In the past, every name of a baby had connotations to either one of the names of the Igbo four market days or prefixes such as ”Chi, Chukwu” meaning (God or the supreme being in control of the universe).

Modernization has however brought so many changes in the minds and behaviours of people that the present-day mothers have somehow abandoned those beautiful Igbo baby names to funkinized Igbo baby names. Days are gone when mothers give their babies names like (‘Akwa-eke, Olanma, Apunanwu, Mgbeke, Mgbori, Mgbonkwo’) and so on.

Mothers of this generation simply prefer posh and trendy names for their babies that sometimes when they call out their children names one would be wondering whether those names are Igbo or foreign names. You would only be shocked to learn that the names are Igbo names when they explained their meanings to you.
