Chidinma is the correct spelling

Beauty or good is spelt as "nma"
While an old woman or mother is spelt as "mma"

Chidinma means God is good.
lo


mma (for old women) and mpa are actualy not igbo words...


dese are short for mama and Papa wich is french.
mom in igbo is nne


beauty is mma, not nma

The correct spelling is 'ChidiMMa'. The letters N and M do not appear side by side in Igbo language

It is chidimma not chidinma.
In Igbo, N and M are not found in a word.
Mma is a word.
But can only be seen in a 'phrasal-word' like oMe-Na-ala.
N and M behave like vowel but they are not vowel in Igbo language (ie myiri-udaume).
Pls don't change my Igbo with Igbo(weed) language.
Nma means good

Chidinma is the correct spelling.
Re: Chidinma Or Chidimma? by BanevsJoker(m): 6:42pm On Oct 29, 2017
Chidimma is the correct spelling. Those who spell Chidinma are confused about their Igbo identity, or have inferiority complex, or are trying to sound cool. Sort of like the Igbo version of Jenifa.

By usage it is Chidnma. But in Igbo u can spell beauty as nma or mma PRESENTLY. Until one wins out.
There is no "correct" in language because who appointed who the authority to decide "correct".

both are correct. It depends on your dialect most people of IMO state and some surrounding igbo area dialect call chidinma. Anambra call it chidimma. depending on your Igbo dialect. just like amarachi imo/abia and some other Igbo dialects and amalachi anambra and some other Igbo dialect.

To my own understanding of Igbo language and grammar, it's CHIDIMMA.

MMA = good, fine, pleasant
NMA is grammatically incorrect in Igbo language, it's a form of anglicising 'MMA'

Very correct. It's anglicization of Igbo language. It's like writing "Ibo" instead of "Igbo". There is nothing like NMA in Igbo language. N and M are not written together; they are sworn enemies of each other. smiley

From my understanding, 'Chidinma' means "God is good"

while 'Chidimma' means "God is good TO ME"

some even bear 'ChiMdinma' meaning, "MY God is good"
or 'ChiMdimma' meaning MY God is good TO ME"

There is no wrong or right spelling, its only wrong when you use a variation for an individual with another variation of the name. I know most bearers are always fast to correct the caller on which particular one they bear despite that fact that the differences are slight.

Go and take your money back from whoever taught you Igbo

So true. My exact thought.
Re: Chidinma Or Chidimma? by wyt(m): 6:46pm On Oct 29, 2017
You are wrong. That's my name and I use 'Nma' because WAEC made that error and to keep my documents safe,I continued with it.

U mean u don't know how to spell ur name if not waec?
Did u do igbo language in secondary school? No offence please. I am just surprise

At OP it is CHIDINMA
