The Urhobo are careful about choosing a name for their child because the ancestors have passed down the belief that a child’s name is tied to their destiny.
In Urhobo culture, Oghene is the supreme God, while the Erivwin represents the ancestral cult or the cult of the forefathers.
These factors, as well as the spirit and body (Erhi and Ugboma), are believed to make a man and his existence; thus, they must be considered when naming a child.
