Please could you help me with the meaning of EMAMUZO??

Yes, it's literal translation is Good head....but, it actually means Good luck.

An Isoko synonymy for Emamuzo is Uzoezi/Uzezi, which also can literal translated to Good head, but it actually means Good luck.

I'm looking up to God... That's actually urhobo tho
@Satoshi2019
I would think Oghenemine is 'God here are mine'....but I might be rendering it from an Isoko equivalent?

What is delight in isoko? Or pleasure?

This is very difficult, especially if you think that, there is a difference between pleasure and happiness/joy.

Joy/happiness is Oghogoho and that could also go for pleasure.

Please What of Oghenemurevi and Oghenemairo?

I am drawing a blank on 'Oghenemurevi' maybe it is my inability to pronounce.

However, Oghenemairo means God is Great....or literally God is Greater!

Joy/happiness is Ughogoho and that could also go for pleasure.
Please it’s not Ughogoho, but Oghòghò. By the way it does not mean pleasure either

Yes, it is Oghogho, as stated I said it is happiness or joy.

And in English, there is a difference between pleasure and happiness, but in Isoko I doubt if there is a separate word for ‘pleasure’.

If I want to express pleasure in Isoko, I will use Oghogho and most people would too…..However, if you think there is another word for pleasure you can state it.

OP what is Oghenerutejiri. Is is Oghenerutejiro

That's looks somehow like urhobo or broken isoko but the proper isoko version is oghenefejiro "God is worth to be praised"

Please can anyone help me with the name: Urhobo meaning of AKPOHWOFADAYEN?

Urhobo girls name - help with the meaning of this name in full? and also help with the short/parts, their refer to...?

Akpohwofadayen
Akpoh and/or Akpohwo
fadayen

I know AKPO refers to life / world...but cannot find any reference/link/meaning or explanation to the rest of the name...

i seem to find info of the name in parts like AKPO = life/world then OHWO = roughly/loosely means kind of 'provides' but nothing for FADAYEN at all!!

I was told once that the significance of the name means in urhobo something like 'the world is jealous of you'? but that is not it literal translation

Urhobo (including Isoko) that The Edo, Itsekiri, Kwale, Ika Igbo and Ijaw language can cross sometimes and I was wondering if this name is known to you or its similar version and what it means please?

thanks.

Good day, please what is favour translated to isoko Gods favoured
Re: Isoko Names And Their Meaning by THECHIEF: 4:31pm On Nov 02, 2022
This is really nice. I am Isoko but truly I didn’t know the meaning of most of these names. It’s most enlightening. Am looking for a good, sweet one to give my wife. She’s from Akwa Ibom, her name is “Comfort”. She has asked me to give her a lovely Isoko name, it’s been over 4yrs now and I still am yet to come up with one that sits well with me in my heart. Sigh! Will be grateful for good suggestions … something sweet, peaceful, supportive, blissful would be nice �

Thanks OP for the post. God bless.

Hopefully those boys don’t go galavanting around causing too much trouble. Twin boys can be something else. Just ask Zack and Cody.
Isoko culture I don’t think has ever outright spoken about twins in any capacity (I mean, it could be completely wrong) but twins are still individual people at the end of the day. They can’t come and be Edeki together like a pair of ugly Siamese twins whose mum only wants them to extract baby-bone for jollof rice. I’d just take it to God and pray that those boys are worth the umbilical cord being cut. That’s all I’m saying.
