Nigerian Igbo Name For My Baby


Hello Aunty Eya,
I came across your blog through a friend and ever since I have been soo hooked to it. I just need a little help from your Blog lovers. 

I am a Ghanian lady married to a Nigerian Igbo man, I am expecting a baby girl in a few weeks and I and my husband have not come up with a name yet. Suggestions from the house would be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you for your time and God bless.
Cynthia

  25. Name your baby after me! Lol! But I really love my name - Uzochukwuamaka, usually shortened to Uzoamaka. The literal meaning is God's path is beautiful. It can be further shortened to Uzo, Amaka, or Ama - which I know is a Ghanaian name too. All the best and wish you a safe delivery! Totally love inter-tribal/interracial marriages.
