Personal and place names is one of the oldest elements of the Yoruba Language and a good knowledge of them will enhance our knowledge of their history and past experiences.
The Yoruba names can be nominal or sentential and the names has been classified into three:
Given Names (Oruko Amutorunwa), Ascribed Names (Oruko Abiso), and Pet Names (Oriki).
Also, some names are formed from Yoruba proverbs.
The list of names here, are 'oruko amutorunwa'.
Examples:
Ojo----------A male child that has his umbilical cord tied around his neck at birth.
Ajayi--------A child born with face turned downwards
Talabi-------A child born with the head and body covered with Caul like a masquerade
Oni---------A baby whose incessant cry at birth suggest that he/she is in distress
Ige --------A baby that came out of the womb with feet first
Aina------Is the female of Ojo(of the two names, Ijebu tribe uses Aina,it is proverbial that (Ijebu
Kii je Ojo),"Ijebus never bear the name Ojo."
Dada-----Children with knotted hair or dreads
Ilori------Conceived after a previous birth, before resumption of mensturation
Oke-----A child wrapped in a thin
membrane at birth, (The Amniotic sac)
Taiwo----The first to arrive ofa twin
Kehinde---The last to arrive of a twin
Eta Oko---The third child in a Triplet
Idowu-----A child born after aset of twins.
Alaba------A child born after Idowu
Olugbodi----A child born with a the sixth finger
Erinle--------A child born with an umbilical cord around his wrist.
All the Amutorunwa names are connected to an unusualevent
at birth, they are instant names.
This whispers the significance of the midwiferylore of the
Yoruba. Unlike the Abiso names, one waits till the naming
ceremony on the eighth day to
hear the names the parents
woukd like to call their child
based on the events at birth,family tradition, and interest
may fact by Encyclopedia.

Quote from: Idbabe on  1-02-2013 01:48PM
Nothing controls you, but u control things.  That you make love on ur first date and never see the girl again means ur both attracted to each other and perhaps your performance on the first date was not very interesting that could be one of the possible reasons.

All the same, if u decide to put a stop on making love on the first date, you can, its a matter of determination.  Remember where there is a WILL, there is a WAY.  Just be willing and there will come a way.

Good luck to you
