Besides that, there are research results that show how people with uncommon names differ from others. They have different ambitions, different characters, and different lives. The point is that a child with a rare beautiful name feels slightly uncomfortable with it through the whole life and it’s a great motivation. For example, a child’s name means something so significant that people start to put great expectations on him or her. It makes a child strive for the success, prove that he or she is worth it. This is how notable personalities are created by a name alone.

On the other hand, by giving their child an uncommon name, parents just want to return to their roots and remember the culture and traditions of their ancestors. It’s a great tendency that young parents look through some Yoruba names dictionary to choose the most authentic and meaningful name for their baby. It’s a guarantee that traditions and beliefs of their people won’t be forgotten with time.

Olatunji- wealth rises over again

Ola should mean more on the side of Excellence or Glory not wealth.

Wealth in Proper Yoruba is Oro.

Olowo - Rich person
Oloro - Wealthy person
Olola - Exalted or Excellent personality.

It is these days that Ola is now used to mean more of wealth.
Spoken Yoruba is becoming more watery each passing generation.
