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'

What do you call knife/cutlass in Igbo

Igbo people in the house, I hail, oh! Something's been bothering me. @topic, do you guys bear Chidinma or Chidimma? Are they the same thing? Because I've seen the two. Thanks in anticipation.

both is correct. depends on the dialect /pronunciation and the spelling the owner of the name wants to go with.



but why is a question that was asked in 2015 making fp in 2017. the op might have left nairaland sef

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.

Both are NOT the same. U are wrong in saying Anambra call it MMA. it is NMA in Anambra as it is in all general /central igbo, the one used in waec

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.

There is no consonant cluster in Igbo Language. The correct spelling is Chidimma not NMA

Re: Chidinma Or Chidimma? by juanmiguel: 6:58pm On Oct 29, 2017
Those who spell theirs as Chidinma just chose to do it that way. if you are talking about the correct spelling so long as Igbo Language is concerned it is spelt CHIDIMMA. Cos in Igbo Language, there is no consonant cluster

Mma is the general spelling

e. g

mmadu

some people pronounce nmadu

Ok guys, let's put it this way, what difference is it to say ;

God is good (as in affirmative tone).
God is good to me
Re: Chidinma Or Chidimma? by boogie2910: 7:01pm On Oct 29, 2017
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).
bross go do ur language well. thats if you are ibo self its nma not mma ..

example: in anambra, they says ekene,but some says ekele, and also Anene, while some says Anele
