i love that name kamsiyochukwu. i once met an ill child in hospital in owerri in 2005, he had that name, i saw the child everyday b4 he was discharged. it was my 1st time of hearing the name, and i fell for it. i'm glad it's unisex(abi?) b/c now i know what to call my child when God gives me one(i hope my wife will accept. . . .when God gives me a wife.lol.)

Nkemdilim, Nwakaego, Amarachi, Nkechi, Chizoba, Ikemefuna, , I'm sure your guy speaks the language (ask him to translate) otherwsie he may not even be interested in an Igbo name.

WOW! This is great.
Is there a lot of Igbo names that start with the letter ""? What about names that start with the letter "J"?
If so please post with meaning as well.

my friend is trying to find the meaning of his names, i think they are igbo, they are tekena and ibulo, please help
|Re: Igbo Names & Their Meanings by Donzman(m): 9:19pm On Mar 18, 2007|
Tekena?. . .I got no clue!
Obianuju means "He/She comes in the time of sorrow"
|Re: Igbo Names & Their Meanings by althea(m): 12:05pm On Mar 29, 2007|
I don't know if you've got the meaninig of the name Ejitu. If not here it is:
"Ejitu" means literally: to hold a while. This could be a form of "Ejituruchukwu" - holding a while for God - referring to God as the source of life. Hence keeping, holding, taking care of this life - the child - for a while before God takes it back. Such a name can arise from a situation where the parents have lost one or more children before.
A similar name but with a different reference is: "Njikwiilimonwu", Ejituruonwu" meaning "may I hold this (child) for a while for death.
The above meaning applies if the emphasis is laid on the three syllables: É-jí-tú.
If the emphasis is on the first two syllables (É-jí-tu) with the Ejitu as a name on its own, then it could mean: (Someone) Indomitable, impossible to hold.
I hope this is of help to you.
