Synopsis:

Never before has a book of this magnitude been written by a native Yoruba author in such a clear, concise and easy-to-read language. The book is well researched and documented. Chief FAMA succinctly describes both the history and cultural aspects of naming a baby with particular emphasis on Orisa names. She shares a candid view of the inner workings of the typical traditional Yoruba family and the various situations which dictates what name/s a child should bear.

Relief is here at last for parents, godparents, students...who in the past have struggled to come up with Yoruba names for their children or godchildren that will express the true meaning of the names given. Readers will learn the meaning of the various stages of a traditional Yoruba Naming Ceremony such as ikosedaye and isomoloruko. The book gives the true meanings of names given to children born abiku, or born to Ayan (drummers), Egungun priests, Babalawos, Iwin, Intra-Family-Marriage, just to name a few topics covered in the book. 1,000+ (African) Orisa Yoruba Names has 179 pages and is bound in a beautiful gold color paper back.
