Yoruba Baby Names - Female

Although not a complete list, here is a list of Yoruba baby names for girls. 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. Having many children is often a sign of wealth in many of the African cultures as well as blessings from God.
