Igbo names for your baby girl and their meanings- no “Chi” names

Hello Ndi Nkem!

Hope you are all well. I have been working on so many projects and I apologize for being absent for a little bit. Anyways I am back now and glad to share some ideas with y’all.

If you are Igbo, you probably know we have an abundance of “chi” names in our dictionary. So I thought, what if you don’t want to name your baby girl a Chi name. What if you aren’t religious or just want a name with a different meaning for your daughter. How many are out there? Well the answer is a lot. I was able to put down a few and here they are:

Check out my youtube channel!
  1. Adaora – my name! First daughter of all
  2. Adannaya (var. Adanna) – First daughter of her father
