One of the things I noticed I really struggled with as a musician was creating a name for myself, that is “Ormah”. I had to come up with a name because during the competition I applied for I had to come up with a stage name and I didn’t have one. All the contestant had a name but I was still finding it difficult to come up with one.
I decided to really pray about it, trust me getting a name for your brand is very important. Apart from the fact that it is what everyone calls you, a name also defines you.
Looking at the Bible when God wanted to change the level of Abraham and Sarah, He changed their names. God even changed the name of Paul from Saul when He wanted to make him his disciple. Many of us need to understand that your name is very important and your name can also determine your success in life.
Another thing to take note of concerning choosing a name is that you need to pray about it. You cannot just choose a name today as a musician and then change that name in 2 years time, it shows unprofessional attitude. God would lead you and show you the write name.
I wanted to change my stage name from Chioma to a different name, that’s why I started praying, however, it’s your choice you can decide to use the name given to you from birth. Chioma Jesus used her name but She decided to add Jesus to her name, Sinach was from Osinachi, Ada is using her name so the choice is yours.
After praying for a name and I didn’t come up with any, I didn’t even find anyone I wanted from the Bible after doing my research. I got my name from a friend, so I went for the photoshoot for the competition, I decided to tell my friend that I could not come up with a stage name and She looked at me and said why don’t you use “Ormah” from Chioma and I was like that’s a great name, I like it. I have never heard the name “Ormah”, that was my first time and I loved it.
So when the Man taking our details came over to me for my stage name, I looked at him with a smile and said ” Ormah”, Ormah means shrewdness (the quality of having or showing good powers of judgement), prudence (the ability to govern and discipline oneself by the use of reason)
So guys am sure God wanted my name to be “Ormah”, He used a friend. He can use any other means to reveal your name to you.
