Well, you will find some exciting options in this article. When a Yoruba child is born, the parents are excited but patient enough to wait for seven days before the child is named.

The seven days wait is enough time for them to decide on what name is befitting for the baby. The Yoruba ethnic group is one of the three major ethnic groups in Nigeria.

They occupy a large part of Northcentral and south-western Nigeria, as well as Central and Southern Benin republic. The Yoruba ethnic group is one that is rich in traditions, religion, and culture; thus, they follow laid down rules when it comes to matters that are sensitive as naming a child.

In times past, before a child is named, a group of Ifa priests or Babalawos would have to ask the gods for a name that suits the child’s destiny. Once the gods give the name, the child is christened on the 7th day after its birth.

Even though times have changed and things have done differently now, the parents of Yoruba baby boys and girls make sure to wait seven days before naming their children.

Naming ceremonies are a big deal in western Nigeria, as the new parents do all they can to make sure that guests are fed and entertained as they celebrate the naming ceremony of the latest member of their family.

Neighbors and other relatives may also bring drinks, foods, money, and other gifts for the newborn as a way of welcoming his or her to the planet.

Some Yoruba baby girl names are very common, while a few are very rare, but the bottom line is that they usually have good meanings. Parents may choose a Yoruba baby girl name according to the circumstances surrounding the birth of the child.

Grandparents and other relatives are also allowed to suggest names for Yoruba children, and these names can be religious or cultural, depending on the reason why the name has been selected.
