180+ Urhobo Names for Boys and Their Meaning


In search of a terrific Urhobo name for your son? We’re pleased to assist you!

The Urhobo people make up the majority of Delta State’s ethnic population in southern Nigeria. Because it is widely believed that a child’s fate is closely related to his or her name, Urhobo parents take great care while naming their children.

Their traditional religion regards Ọghẹnẹ as the All-Powerful God and Erivwin as the Cult of the Ancestors and Forefathers (Esemo and Iniemo). The physical body (Ugboma) and the spiritual body (or spirit man), according to the Urhobos, are two separate entities that make up every human (Erhi). Prior to a man’s incarnation into the world, the Erhi (spirit man) determines his destiny and how it will be fulfilled. The man’s general wellbeing (ufuoma) is likewise under the jurisdiction of Erhi.

The Urhobo people’s beliefs are all reflected in their names, which have a significant spiritual or religious connotation. The majority of Urhobo names also allude to a person’s wealth, place of birth, local climate, resources, and color. Here are 130+ Urhobo names for girls and their meaning.

All of these are included in our list. Pick a name for your baby boy from the extensive list provided below:
