If you have been looking for options, we have put together some very interesting Urhobo baby boy names with good meaning that you can select from.

If you do not know much about the Urhobo people, it is no surprise because they are a minority group in Nigeria, even though they are the majority ethnic group in Delta state.

The oil-rich state has several ethnic groups, but most individuals assume the Urhobos are the only cultural group with the borders.

Famous for their local ogogoro gin, Banga soup, starch, and of course, their tasty pepper soup, the Urhobo people are among the most accommodating and peace-loving ethnic groups in the Niger Delta.

Naming a child, whether male or female, should be done with care, as the Urhobo people believe that the destiny of a child is influenced by what the parents and other people call him or her.

This cultural belief has existed for centuries, and parents are beginning to create new names influenced by Christianity and other religions for apparent reasons.

Oghene is the supreme God, and names now begin with “Oghene” as a way of dedicating the child to the Supreme being.

Nature, circumstances, money, weather, place of birth, market days, lineage, and other factors also influence names.

If your Urhobo baby boy reminds you of a family member you admire, you can also choose an Urhobo baby boy name shared by that family member.

Unlike the Yoruba people, who must wait till the 7th day after a child is born before being named, the Urhobos can name their child whenever they choose.

There is so much to learn about Urhobo names and meanings, so we have made available the real meanings of all the Urhobo baby boy names featured in this article.

We hope you find a befitting one for your baby as you run through our name list.
