Igbo Baby Girl Names and Meanings

During pregnancy, parents get the most hilarious baby name ideas. As it is very natural for mothers to attach emotional importance to anything, resist the temptation to name your beautiful girl child after your most effective painkiller. 

Igbo Baby Girl Names and Meaning

We’re here to answer questions like “what name will I give to my baby? Should I name my baby after a family member? Should we name the baby after an event? How about naming her after my favorite TV channel? TRACEy sounds lovely!”

There are too many factors to consider when naming a child. Most names especially traditional ones, have an attached history; therefore, most factors influence the names you choose for your babies.

Such factors include the circumstance surrounding childbirth, the significance of the day the child was born, and so on.

With child naming, some hasty parents accept suggestions without inquiring its meaning. 


In this article, I will list out Igbo names and their meaning, but before this, I would like to discuss a little about the Igbos and child naming.

Igbo is one of the major ethnic groups which dwells in southeastern Nigeria. The Igbos determine that what you name your child will actually determine what the child’s life will look like.

The Igbo’s really believed in naming a child after an event that took place that day, and lots of other conditions. Presently in the Igbo community, children are now given lovely and Godly names and no longer given funny local names.
