Scandal star, Kerry Washington, reveals her Igbo name

The star of  Scandal who is married to Nigerian born,, American former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha revealed her Igbo name in the latest issue of InStyle magazine. Excerpts.........

Nnamdi’s parents are Nigerian immigrants. His father passed when he was young. When you marry into the Igbo culture, you get a new name. My name is Ogechi. I wear it on a necklace my mother-in-law gave me.

My daughter’s name is Isabelle Amarachi. Isabelle is my grandmother’s name. She was a badass. She’d be scowling if she knew I called her that, but she was an immigrant from Jamaica who raised seven children alone in the Bronx. Isabelle’s middle name, Amarachi is Igbo for “God’s grace.”
