Anyone want to guess on the pronunciation? The meaning of this name is nice.

If I could pronounce it, I might have given it a good review. As it is - WHAT?

Well, I think anyone can agree that this is certainly a unique name. I probably wouldn't name my kid this, but if you offered me a million dollars, I would and I would call him Ned.

Good luck teaching your child how to spell their own name. I'm gonna have a go at pronouncing it and saying 'ee-KEN-ed-illy-choo-kwoo'. Of course that is purely based on a guess. But it sounds like a lovely name even so.

This is a lovely name! If there were a shorted version of this name, I'd take it!

Other Igbo names are also nice, and most of the longer names have short forms. I suppose you could chop it off at Ekene or Ekenedil if you wanted to.

I like the meaning, but I certanly feel sorry for the poor little kid when he's learning to spell "Ekenedilichukwo". As for how it's pronounced, I'm going to guess "eh-ken-dill-ee-chew-koo-oh", which actually sounds nice when said out loud. If that is how it's pronounced.
I'd almost rather be named "Aleluia". It's the same meaning really--just that Aleluia's Hebrew, and a whole lot easier to spell. :)

Well. This is one of the most interesting names I've seen on this website as of yet. Although, you're right, it does sound nice when you say it out loud. It's when you have to spell it - that's where the problem is.

What would you shorten it to?

I don't really know what to think of this name. I can't pronounce it. This is the longest name I've seen ever. I guess as a nickname you could use Ken or Ekene.

It looks perfectly pronounceable to me. I mean, since African languages were transcribed by Europeans using European phonetics, just break it down... It's only intimidating-looking since it's so long and unfamiliar. Eh-KEH-neh-DEE-lee-CHOOK-woo, is my guess. As for spelling, this would actually be a great name for kids to learn off of - since it's (probably) phonetic, you can just point to any part of the name (ex. 'chu'), pronounce, and hey presto! They correctly learn that 'ch' makes the 'ch' sound, and 'u' makes the 'oo' sound.

Honestly, un-anglicized Irish names are WAY harder. Even the earlier 'Aleluia' example is less spelling-friendly, since your kid is gonna have to learn that in every case except his name, the 'y' sound is not supposed to be spelled using an 'i'.

That being said, no, don't use it, please. Just, no. Ekene, maybe.

I think the right interpretation of the name Ekenedilichukwu is Thanks be to God not all praise be to God. Ekenedilichukwu is my first name, I am a female and I know the circumstances surrounding my birth warranted my name.

For the short form of the name people call me Eky also spelt Ekie, Kenny depending on who and mood.

Oh dear god...

I guess it’s pronounced the way it’s spelled...? But yeah, like another commenter said, just call the kid Ned.

Point of correction Ekenedilichukwu means thanks or praise be to God. It's the most beautiful name in the world and you don't need to pronounce it fully, you can just call me ekene, which means praise or thanks.
