Idowuogbo, they are just messing with you.

Ndidiamaka is a beautiful name. So is Obiageli.

Ndidi (Patience) Amaka(Is beautiful)

Of course, in this world of "instant gratification", there might be people who wouldn't think patience is a virtue

Obiageli (One who came to chop) aka chopping gyal.

But sometimes you need Ndidi before you can chop, no be so? grin

Idowuogbo,

Don't mind those messing with your lovely middle name. Nigerians and superstitions! It all began with the popular Nollywood movie of the late '90s - 'Nneka the Pretty Serpent' - with Ndidi Obi in the lead role. The film was very graphic/explicit for its time and the lead actress is light complexioned. The usual naija rumour began that Ndidi Obi is an ogbanje in real life. Next thing you know, Pentecostal pastors began using the movie as a sermon theme. From there, the rumour spread that all girls named Ndidi are ogbanje etc, etc.

Re: Short Igbo Names For Baby Girl And Meaning Needed by blank(f): 6:31pm On Oct 24, 2011
@ Idowuogbo, She was just saying that patience is no longer a virtue that is why people feel that Ndidi is outdated. No one wantss to wait again.

No vex my dear. I don't think she meant to be offend.

'Patience is good' is not encouraging? No wonder we are the most corrupt, fraudulent and lawless nation in the world with that sort of rat race mentality.

Those other names in your list are recent Pentecostalized/funky-fied names except Lotanna. This is why you can hardly find any Igbo person above the age of 25 bearing such names. They are not traditional Igbo names.  However, Lotanna/Lotachi/Lotachukwu (remember God) has been around for quite a while now. I know people in their forties with that name.

Ndidiamaka is an old and venerable Igbo name and it conveys a very positive virtue.

ID, abeg no mind dem cheesy grin

Re: Short Igbo Names For Baby Girl And Meaning Needed by mafolayomi(f): 4:48pm On Oct 25, 2011
what does Lotanna mean?
Re: Short Igbo Names For Baby Girl And Meaning Needed by Ameshiful2: 6:27pm On Oct 27, 2011
Lota = Remember

Nna = Father.

So it means "Remember the Father" Now you may choose to see Father as meaning, earthly father or Heavenly father (God).
