120 Urhobo Baby Names With Meanings

Urhobos, the ethnic group of people residing in the Delta State of southern Nigeria, are particular about the names they choose for their babies. Just like most societies and ethnic groups, names are not just labels, but invoke religious and spiritual significance. The Urhobos believe that a child’s destiny is tied strongly to his or her name and they will live up to the meaning of the name they bear.

For instance, if the name means ‘thief’, the parents believe that the child will grow up to be a rogue and if the name means ‘wealthy’, then the child will hopefully grow up to be a rich individual. Some parents even give names that connote challenge to themselves or the other because they believe that Urhobo people flourish best when challenged.

Besides, Urhobo people also pick names that denote special events or date or emphasize a vital resource or importance of people.

Usually, grandparents or older relatives select names for the newborns. Apart from parents and grandparents, the Urhobo parents do not allow anyone else to touch their baby, until the age of three months. And unlike other ethnic groups of Africa, the Urhobos do not organize any special naming ceremony.
