This is an article dedicated to all those who are in search of Urhobo baby girl names for that Omote that has just become a member of their family.

The Urhobos take the naming of a child very seriously for many reasons, and one of the most common reasons is that they strongly believe that children are worth more than wealth (hence names like Omonefe).

This is why they take the time to select befitting Urhobo names for children, whether male or female. Some Urhobo baby girl names usually sound Asian when shortened, and example of such names is Ruona and Gueke.

So there’s a thrill that comes with having people go “wow” when you call your child an Urhobo baby girl name. Before we go further into sharing some of the fantastic name options we have here, it is only fair that we take a look at the Urhobo people as an ethnic group in southern Nigeria.

The Urhobo are the majority ethnic group in the Delta state of Nigeria, and they are famous for their native attire of wrapper, top, hat, and walking stick. Also famous is their delicious Banga soup and starch, and their yam and goat meat pepper soup.

The Urhobo are careful about choosing a name for their child because the ancestors have passed down the belief that a child’s name is tied to their destiny.

In Urhobo culture, Oghene is the supreme God, while the Erivwin represents the ancestral cult or the cult of the forefathers. These factors, as well as the spirit and body (Erhi and Ugboma), are believed to make a man and his existence; thus they must be considered when naming a child.

Most Urhobo baby girl names reflect factors including circumstances of birth, divine promise, hope, wealth, color, weather, place of birth, market days, parent’s religious belief, and sometimes natural resources.

There are thousands of new and classic Urhobo baby girl names that you can choose from, and they also have meanings you may be able to relate to.
