There are 117 Igbo names for baby boys.

Igbo names are names of West African origin, more specifically, that of Southeastern Nigeria. With the influence of Christianity in the region in the 20th century, many Igbo names point to blessings or workings of God. The word Chi means life source or providence, and is the prefix to many Igbo names like Chima, which means God knows, and Chioke, which means power of God. One of the most popular Igbo names is Chinua, which means God's blessing. Chinua Achebe is the author of the ground-breaking novel "Things fall apart". Igbo names remain a somewhat unusual and niche choice for western parents, although a number of Igbo sportspersons and celebrities have become popular in American and British circles.

Igbo names are rarely used baby names for boys. At the modest height of their usage in 1998, 0.007% of baby boys were given Igbo names. There was 1 Igbo name ranked within the top 1000 baby names then. Igbo names have since experienced a decline in popularity, and are used only on an infrequent scale now.
