Teacher’s Page Things Fall Apart Chapter 9 Names Objective: Relating literature to life Activity Okonkwo’s second wife Ekwefi “had suffered a good deal in her life. She had borne ten children and nine of them had died in infancy, usually before the age of three.” (Pg. 77) This misfortune is attributed to ogbanjie, wicked children who are repeatedly reincarnated. Because of the deaths, Ekwefi gives her children names that reflect her belief in the reincarnation process. In addition, names are so important to the members of the Ibo tribe that they hold naming ceremonies seven weeks after the birth of a child. Make a list of the Top Ten Names of the past few years. TOP TEN NAMES Reflection : Write an essay answering the following questions: Why do you think these names are so common today? Do you know the meaning or folklore behind any of the names? Look up the meanings of some of the names. Do the meanings reflect anyone you know who has that name? Why do you think some names are more popular than others?What does your name mean? Why did your parents give you this name? If you could change your name, what would you change it to? Why would you choose this name?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
