300+ Unique Yoruba Girl Names and Their Meaning

Sharing is caring!

I don’t know about you but I love native names.

As a Yoruba girl, I find Yoruba names so sweet and beautiful.

My first name is Olubunmi and my middle name, which I chose by myself at baptism, is Mabel. I was only thirteen then. Maybe I’d have chosen a Yoruba name if I’d known better. I hope there’s no law that states that one must choose an English name for baptism.

Maybe a biblical name, yeah, but Mabel isn’t even in the Bible.  LOL.

Anyway, I love my name, Mabel, and a lot of people know me as Mabel. I love its meanings- beautiful, loving, lovable.

Awwnnn. So sweet! Forget the fact that I didn’t know the meaning when I chose it.

Thank God it’s something that describes me so perfectly and something positive too.

I guess I was lucky. Don’t judge me, please. I didn’t have access to the internet then unlike now. That is why I don’t expect anyone to make such a mistake now. Not with the present unlimited access to the internet.

Unfortunately,  some parents give their babies names without knowing the meaning of such names. I’ve witnessed this before, so I’m not exaggerating.

I’m showing my kindness by making available cute Yoruba girl names for those who want to give their baby girls Yoruba names or those who want to change their names or adopt Yoruba names for themselves. What’s there not to love about Yoruba girl names? They’re so sweet to the ears and they carry very deep meanings.

As much as I love the name Mabel, I love being called Bunmi more. I kinda feel that those who call me Bunmi are those who really know me and are very close to me.

My family calls me Bunmi, and my husband too, except when he teases me by calling me OluMabel. LOL.

I believe this list of Yoruba girl names will guide parents in choosing cute and meaningful names for their baby girls because some names we hear these days are cringeworthy.

I understand that parents have the right to give their children whatever names they desire but that doesn’t mean they should throw caution into the wind. I don’t understand why parents should name their children ‘tithes’ and ‘offering’. Like seriously?

Please don’t give your children names that will make them to be objects of bullying and mockery in school and anywhere.

Below is the list of Yoruba girl names and their meaning. Some are the ones I’ve heard from others and others are my coinage.  You should pay for my creativity but…don’t worry…I gat you.

  8. Fadoju Catherine

    Love Yoruba names too, wish so many don’t call me Catherine too,but l don’t like the name Iyabode because of the meaning. I prepare Morenikejimi. How l wished l was mature enough during my early school days. Would have loved to have that on my certificates instead of Iyabode.
    Oluwalonimi is beautiful too

    1. Olubunmi Mabel

      Tiwa is a beautiful name as well. It could be Tiwalola (wealth is ours), Tiwaloluwa (God is ours), Tiwalade (crown is ours)

  9. Hi
    Do you know what the name Lola means in Yoruba?
    Also I read Bimpe means a beautiful child. Is that incorrect?
    Thanks 🙂

    1. Olubunmi Mabel

      Lola has various prefixes- It could be Omolola (child is wealth), Funmilola (give me wealth), Tiwalola (wealth is ours). Lol.
      Bimpe is also a beautiful name. It means ”I was born perfectly’

  12. I’m a (mostly) white American who has a very good Yoruba (male) friend. Many years ago, I found the Yoruba word/name Akanke. I asked him if it could be my daughters unofficial Yoruba name. He said it actually should be mine instead. Although he also mentioned it would be old fashioned but unique.
    I personally love it (but can’t quite pronounce it the way he can!)
    I think it should be popular…. what do you think?

  13. Hi there…i’m not Nigerian but love love Yoruba names and would want to give one to my baby when born.i’d prefer a name that begins with “g” or “j” pleaseeeee ma’am

    1. Yoruba names are cute! lol. go through the list, I’m sure you’ll find something. I’ll also ensure to update the list.

    Ajayi, jolasun, Ayoka, ife, Ayoola, Emilohi, jadesola, Kayin keyshia, Akanni, Apara, Mayowa, koyinsola, Ajani, Ajoke, Alani, Iyin.
    My own Yoruba name is Oreofe.
