Etymology of the name CHIAMAKA.
Meaning of the baby name CHIAMAKA.

  

CHIAMAKA.  A variant form of African Igbo Chiemeka (q.v.), meaning "God is noble," or "the spirit knows."  The first part is Chi "God" or "guardian spirit." (Journal of the Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland, v.36, 1906)  The second appears to come from mača/maka "to know well," a word very similar in meaning to the root of our own English word "noble," from Latin gnō, base of nōscere (i.e. gnōscere), to know. (A Concise Etymological Dictionary of the English Language, Skeat, 1901; Anthropological Report on the Ibo-speaking Peoples of Nigeria, Thomas, 1913).
    Chiamaka Obinna, wife of Christogonus Ezebuiro Obinna (d. 1999), who was leader of the Oriental Brothers International Band in Nigeria. (Wiki)
