Call Her Ogechi! Kerry Washington And Daughter Now Have Igbo Names

 
Kerry Washington now has an Igbo name.. Thanks to her husband, former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha
The Scandal star told InStyle
"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 bad-ass. 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'."
