Nigerian Baby Names


The number of languages currently estimated and found to be spoken in Nigeria is 521. In some areas of Nigeria, ethnic groups speak more than one language. The official language of Nigeria is English (former colonial language) and is used for commerce, government and urban business. However, most of Nigeria is still highly rural and the primary languages spoken are Yoruba, Hausa, Igbo, Fulfulde, Kanuri and Ibibio. With that in mind, we will use the term “Nigerian” to refer to baby names from any one of these prime languages as well as meanings and cultural references where applicable. Baby Name Network is a great place to start researching Nigerian and African baby names and name meanings.
