A-Z Igbo names for the Girl child and their meaning

The Igbo language is spoken by people in the South-Eastern and parts of South-Southern Nigeria. It is a vibrant and rich language; Igbo names are no different. They have very deep meanings, are instructional and even tell very short stories.

These Igbo names are traditionally and historically constructed. Sometimes the baby’s grandparents will present a list of Igbo names. Some, however, are named after the events surrounding the child’s birth.

Naming a child is a very important decision for the child’s parent; as the name forms the basis of the child’s identity. Like many other African native names, the Igbo people gift their children these beautiful indigenous names. Looking at naming your girl child and still confused on what name?
