When you give your child a name, you want it to be very special and have a sacred meaning. It often happens that a name has an impact on a child’s fate and life. This is why parents often come to the matter of choosing a name for their baby with all responsibility and research the absolutely unique ones with the most interesting meanings.

Uncommon Yoruba female and male names with meaning
Why choose an uncommon name?

There are enough namesakes running around and parents just don’t want their son or daughter to be another one with the same popular name.

Uncommon Yoruba female and male names with meaning

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.

Let’s see, which Yoruba names and meanings are suitable for babies of today.

Beautiful names up there but, most of what you called female names are actually unisex. So both genders can bear it and for Jimoh, most people don't know its a Yoruba name but Arabic. Good work anyways.

2. None of these names will qualify as uncommon. When you refuse to learn or properly speak the language, why would normal Yoruba names not be "uncommon"
3. Good names you're supposed to give your children full here berekete, but no. You will be "naming" them "ogbanje" names "Shaniqua", "Esmeralda", "Kayla", "Shawn" etc grin grin grin grin
