Yoruba Baby Names - Male

Although not a complete list, here is a list of Yoruba baby names for boys. A new baby is given a name during a traditional naming ceremony on their eighth day of life. Children are often named after the circumstances in which they were born, as a honor to God, or as a reflection of the wealth they bring to their family.
