Why Nigerians Love English Baby Names

It’s no secret that English names are some of the most popular non-Nigerian baby names in Nigeria. Naming of babies in English, boys and girls, dates back a long to the colonial days. In Nigeria, English names are an automatic identifier of a Christian, and that was because the English people brought Christianity to Nigeria and at the time preached for new Christians to ‘baptize’ by picking a new Christian-based English name.

English baby boy names are also a favourite among expecting mothers in Nigeria.
