I see some names and i wonder, Parents why name your kids that, its food for bullies angry

some names may mean something in some tribes and mean something totally different in some others,


I will never call my kid Penda, its a name to some but in another tribe it means a sore/wound

Some names are tongue twisters

ESUPOFO, meaning the devil has failed. i know a man that gave his child this name. People call him baba esu i.e father of the DEVIL, and call the boy ESU wen they want to bully him. i guess the name is really affecting him because he has some devilish tendencies just last week he broke clinton's leg(my dog)

No Nigerian name, that's for sure. If I had a say in the matter, my 'rents wouldn't've given me a local (Igbo/Nigerian) name, seeing as they both have English names. :-C
I like these names (they sound exotic):
Stefan
Lucian
Maximillan
André
Alexei
Yugo
Yuri
Alistair

I've said it that my children will never bear an English name. Many people just bear names without knowing what they mean.

I just asked my friend and he said that Ogbenyeanu means may a pauper not marry me. Is it true? He said that Nkemdiche is also a bad name.
