Top Yoruba Names starting with Oluwa and Their Meanings

So, you have gotten married. You and your spouse have just had a child. What next? Naming, right? That’s quite right. This is given a lot of importance, especially in the Yoruba culture. Even before the birth of a child, family members from far and near already give names to the child. This may even become overwhelming to the parents of the child. Sometimes, they are put under some sort of pressure to pick the names given by everybody. Even friends sometimes drop their own opinions. Many times though, these do not really count. At the end of the day, you name your child what you want. Yoruba parents usually tend to name their children following certain unspoken rules.
