Onyinye means Gift. But the full name is usually Onyinyechi which means Gift from God

ifekefuma?

She is either referring to Ifemefuna or Ikemefuna? I don't think she speaks Igbo.

@ Fightforchange, Ikemefuna is a masculine name. Don't know if Ifemefuna is unisex

I thought so mehn!! smiley

I like Ihe" more, although we also say 'Ife. My guess would be "Ihe carries more masculine force while ''Ife is more feminine, if such name is unisex, then Ihemelumma should be male grin lol

If you change the f you must equally change the l. ifemelumma to ihemeremma the borrowed version. The name is a northern/Anambra name but you want to corrupt it.

I don't think those front and back rules apply for a name or word. As you know,it is all about difference in pronunciation however, 'Ihemeremma' sounds sweeter. grin cheesy

Thank you...
