Names for boys and girls
most African countries, names usually have meanings attached
to something or God. Among the Igbos of Nigeria, God is always
associated with the majority of names. The symbol "CHI"
is short for Chukwu which means GOD. The names sometimes are
too long, and some people tend to shorten them for various reasons.
For example, the name Uchechukwu is shortened to Uche. Ikechukwu
to simply Ike etc. The meanings of these two names are on the
next page. Some names can have two or three meanings depending
on the interpretation, and sometimes a name can be used for
both male and female. In some cases, a name with the same meaning
is spelled and pronounced differently depending on the people's
dialect. The names we have here can be used as first or middle
name. Click here to see
