    I love Damaris and Amara for girls, and Benjamin and Isaiah for boys. In general, I love names that mean something so Emeka and Anuli are nice.

    Naphtali reminds me of naphthalene.. and mothballs smell 🙁 sorry.

    Obi makes me think of Obi-Wan Kenobi, and if you like Star Wars it’s a plus 🙂

    I think they are beautiful names. Not atrocious at all!

    I’m not particularly a fan of Naphtali, but I love the others!  Naphtali just seems like you’ll be forcing the girl to spell her name for the rest of her life. 

    Also I wouldn’t worry about the school-taunting for Obi– most kids hardly ever use or share their middle names, it’s more like a fun secret when you’re young!  They may say “like Obi Wan Kenobi!” once or twice, but I doubt it will be something scarring.  (Though this is just based on personal experience, so who knows!)

    I would probably do Amara Naphtali/Naftali instead of the other way around, but that’s just because I like the name Amara better!

    I don’t love Damaris or Naphtali, personally, but I don’t think they’re awful by any means. Love the Igbo names, which are a nice nod to your heritage.
