But why opt for an Ijaw baby girl name when you can always Christian your baby an English name? Here is our take on this critical question, before we share the list with you.

Nigeria is the most populous African country, and the country owes this to several factors which will not be discussed here. With over 540 languages and ethnic groups, this culturally diverse nation has been able to create a beautiful collage of rich cultures and traditions.

The family, being the primary unit of every society, is made of unique people who share a blood relation, but stand out as individuals with different names and personalities. One of the fastest ways to identify a Nigerian by their ethnicity is through their names.

Yes, an Izon man can easily stand out in a crowd of Nigerians from other ethnic groups when he calls out his name, and so can an Ibibio man.

Giving your child a name that is local to your ethnic group is one of the few ways to portray your child’s identity, remind them of their roots, and teach them to be proud of their heritage wherever they find themselves as they grow older.

The world has evolved past the stage where Africans are too ashamed to be called their native names, and this is a good thing. Besides, there’s a beauty to how female Izon or Ijaw baby girl names roll off the tongue, and you don’t want to give that up for anything.

Also worthy of note is that the Ijaw people are the fourth largest ethnic group in Nigeria, with populations scattered around parts of the south, and western regions of the country.

Ijaw communities are mostly riverine, making their primary occupation fishing, and causing them to be great natural swimmers. While Ijaws are notorious for adopting English names, they are also known to have some of the most beautiful native names in Nigeria.

Here is our list of Ijaw baby girl names you should consider.
