Modern Igbo Baby Names by Nnenwoke: 12:49am On Dec 29, 2012
So I've been at a loss for Igbo names that speak to me. Don't get me wrong, I love the meaning of our names but I want more than the typical Ugonna, Emekaetc. for our little guy. I've noticed a wave of funky baby girl names and I am hoping to compile a list of fun names for boys. If you know any, please, please share! Thanks everyone.

What part of the east do you hail from...this would help me in knowing the kind of names to give to you.

A typical example are names like Kalu, uko, udonsi...etc, are names you'd find only in Abia state.

We have central Ibo names like Emeka, Chinedu, Ifeanyi...etc, which all Igbos bear.

We also have anambra names like Onochie, moloku, okwudili, Anigbogu...etc.

So be more specific, and I would be glad to help you out.
Re: Modern Igbo Baby Names by Nnenwoke: 3:44am On Dec 31, 2012
Thanks for all of the serious response. Eddy, LOL, take your time in returning. I wont be using any of those names. To answer your question, Crazy Man, we hail from Anambra. 299, I like the name but in the past 4 years, more than 5 relations have samed their kids that. Very popular!
