Sunday In House Gists - Naming Sons And Daughters In A Family...

Every tribe has a name they name their first sons and daughters right.....You can also find children in a family all bearing same names with different meanings.....Do you understand what i mean?

In Eastern Nigeria,All the daughters in a family can bear the name ADA but each Ada has a different meaning...

1.ADAOBI,-1st daughter of the Kith and Kin.
The respect she commands is unbelievable..

- .ADAMMA- Beautiful daughter

- .ADAEZE -Chief's daughter

- ADAKU -  Daughter born into riches

- ADAOYIBO -The ajebutter daughter.

- ADANNIA - The Chief's favourite daughter.

The male can be,all sons can be called Nna but each have a different meaning...


Do names like this exist where you are from?please list them out with their meanings..

In Isoko Male and Female can bear same names cos we dont have gender specific names like is found in the East...

Lets gist!

    The names you mentioned up there are correct.

  2. It's not so where I'm from. I'll be reading comments.

    1. It means princess, my first and second cousins bears it. Its normally reserved for first daughters in the family

  4. Well this may be out of context, but In my family we have about 7 girls bearing vivian.
    Don’t know why.

  5. It's usually not like that with the yorubas, we either name kids after someone or an incident, these days people name their kids their way

    1. Please o I wasn't named after anyone or an incident.

    2. Kuzee isn't a Yoruba name, you are very correct ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿšถ

    3. Sometimes Yoruba parents name because of so circumstances surrounding the birth of the child but in most cases Yoruba name their children in adoration of God's goodness.

  6. My husband doesn't give me issues in naming our kids, I list our names and GE chooses from the list, So na me dey name our children๐Ÿ˜,the man no just get wahala, a times I call him mumu, the only thing he's good at is to make Money,i decide how we spend it, and me I prefer commanding men, but anyway I thank God.

    2. Lolz,see them Ndi husband commanders.This is funny i swear. Hope you don't abuse your husbands o

    3. I thought I was the only one๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰

    4. @Lily Ambrose, please read what anon14:40 wrote again. You got it wrong.

  7. Idoma in Benue.
    Adakole. Father of the house. It is usually given to the first son.
    Ene. Mother is usually given to 1st daughters.
    But it is not cast in stone. People can name the children Ene or Adakole even if they are not first son or daughter.
    The names are so common that if you shout ENE or adakole on a street up to half of the people on the road will respond to you.

    1. Yeah, I know that of Ene in Idoma.. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    2. You are very correct Anon.
      Ene,Ada, Ehi, owoicho, are common idoma names.

  8. I will give my children Godly names. That's all.

  9. Yes o proudly isoko our names are unisex

  10. Mum did all the naming and was very deep about it. Everyone of us has God starting, in between and ending it; Dad had only one name for all his daughters, looolz. Guy man just can't be bothered especially about the native names. So he did the English and approved all the native names mum chose. I love my parents for that in particular. I named mine long before they arrived and they are all rooted in Christ, sweetie got no choice but to accept.
