    Ava and Mia, not an Igbo or hell even a Nigerian name. Thought we left our inferiority complex back in the 40s.

      You seem to be the one with the complex. They likely have Igbo names sef, not just what they will be called. It’s like we are always in search of something to rant about.
      On the more important issue abeg, healthy, beautiful babies,they are so cute. Congrats to them.

      What does the names have to do with anything.. stop actin asif ordinary Nigerians don’t hv English names IN NIGERIA.. just because they didn’t broadcast their igbo names does not mean they don’t have… Nd even if they don’t have… It is still ok.. After all their fathers name is Mikel

      You’re completely missing my point, they’re both representing their cultures and Mikel completely left his out. Also Nigerians name their children western names because of the said inferiority complex, why I referenced the 40s, from the 50s to the 60s there was a return to African names in defiance of the colonial masters who had classified the name as savage.
      Anybody with an even elementary knowledge of history would know these things.

      Is Elessaris an Igbo or a Nigerian name? even when our parents gives us unique names, we still went on abbreviating all the good names, Chidimma, as in Chidigood, Ndubisi, Ndidi as in Nd, Akachi as in AK,,name it,,, etc

      You comparing a fictional name to a real one, That’s so logical! I assume your friends and family call you Madam correct at home?

      Also everybody seems to be missing my point.

      ““In the opinion of the court, the legislation and histories of the times, and the language used in the Declaration of Independence, show, that neither the class of persons who had been imported as slaves, nor their descendants, whether they had become free or not, were then acknowledged as a part of the people, nor intended to be included in the general words used in that memorable instrument…They had for more than a century before been regarded as beings of an inferior order, and altogether unfit to associate with the white race, either in social or political relations; and so far inferior, that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect; and that the negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his benefit.”

      Since BN doesn’t have an editing tool, I would have underlined parts, so I’ll instead repeat the most pertinent one.

      “.They had for more than a century before been regarded as beings of an inferior order, and altogether unfit to associate with the white race, either in social or political relations; and so far inferior, that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect; and that the negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his benefit.”

      Do you understand my point now, for hundreds of years, we were continually told we were inferior beings, our culture was evil and our names were savage. They claimed our discoveries, forced our parents/grandparents to change their names to more “civilized ones” until two generations past there was an awakening. I’m just saddened that a mere generation later we’re doing their work of cultural destruction for them especially since we should and do know better. Especially when cultures they tried to suppress too, the Chinese and Indian ones are taking great leap forwards in front of us, aren’t we by ourselves proving them right?? That was my point, perhaps I should have made it clearer from the start.

      To show that you too do not have this “inferiority complex” you should have used a Nigerian name as your “fictional name”.

      Let’s know you stand by your truth in fiction and in reality.

      Typically you make a lot of sense in your comments but in this one, you made a very silly point. Admit it and move on.
