same with these ones..

wale = came home
deji = doubled (nearest meaning, e.g ayodeji=my joy is doubled)


those names the OP listed are short form of long names.. Deji can be adedeji, oyedeji, ayodeji, oladeji e.t.c and if u call them deji, they'll all answer you.
adenike, oyenike = Nike. ... e.t.c.
