100 Trending Igbo Baby Girl Names and Meaning
Igbo Baby Girl Names and Meaning – Most parents are always eager to know the gender of their unborn baby.
During pregnancy period, some funny questions do come into parents’ mind, questions like what’s the gender of the baby, what name will I give to my baby, should I name my baby after a family member, should the baby be named after an event or should it be a choice from nature?
There are too many factors to consider when naming a child. Most names especially traditional names have stories behind them; therefore most factors influence the names you choose for your babies.
Such factors include the circumstance surrounding childbirth, the significance of the day the child was born and so on.
When it comes to child naming, as parents I know you do have lovely names to give to your children but often do not know their meanings.
In this article, I will be listing out Igbo names and their meaning, but before this, I will like to discuss a little about the Igbos and child naming.
Igbo is one of the major ethnic group which dwells in southeastern Nigeria. The Igbo’s determine that what you name your child will actually determine what the child’s life will look like.
The Igbo’s really believed in naming a child after an event that took place that day and lots of other conditions. Presently in the Igbo community, children are now given lovely and Godly names and no longer given funny local names.
