Oneika, Onika, and Nikki Minaj

Hi,
I was trying to upload a face pix and received this message: This name is not in our database, so photo will not appear on the site. My first name is Oneika. My father told me that it is Swahili for “one with beauty”. Can you research and add it? There are quite a few Oneikas out there. Some spell it the way mine is spelled and I’ve also seen Onika which happens to be Nikki Minaj’s name.

Sincerely,
Oneika T. K.

Dear Oneika,

You have a beautiful name! Thank you for your submission. I have researched the name, which is more likely to have come from West Africa. It is a variation of the Igbo name, Onyekachi, which means “Who is greater than God?” I have added it to the BabyNames.com database.

Sincerely,
Jennifer
