Esu is not a " real devil" and is not just some yoruba god that was worshipped "long ago".    Esu is the divine Messenger and mouthpiece of Orunmila, a central character in the pantheon of Orisas, without Esu there would be chaos.    Your writing this either shows ignorance of your own countries cultural and historical tapestry or at best just a poor choice of words.    I am sure you didn't mean harm.    As a traditional beleiver and not afraid to claim so, as so many people seem to be, I find it offensive that everywhere around the world there are people (usually freshly minted christians) who seem to find it their mission to destroy and spread lies about a yoruban based belief system and culture that has thrived and taken care of its people not only in africa but also in the diaspora for centuries.   .   .

In the Yoruba culture, the child is usually named on the 8th day of life (exactly a week after he/she was born), in a traditional naming ceremony.  Until I can get more information on this site for it, visit this site which has a wonderful description of the ceremony, the food, etc.

Actually am not a Yoruba but I love to Contribute! Please any where am not right, you can help me out.

NAMES:-                              MEANINGS:-
Odutola                                Oracle is Rich
Omotola                                My Child is Rich
Oluwole                                The Lord has entered the house
Olushola                                The Lord has brought wealth
Oluseun                                 The Lord has done it
Ayomide                                 My happiness has come
Olabisi                                    Our wealth has increased
Ayotunde                                Happiness has come again
Omololu                                  The Child is our Pride / Lord
Olufemi                                   God Loves me
Bamgboye                               Give me the Chieftaincy
Oluwatunde                             God has come
Olalekan                                  My wealth has increased
Ogundiran                                God of Iron Family
Adeyinka                                 Am Surrounded by crowns
Olutunde                                 A valued child hass come
Temitope                                 Am full of thanks.etc
Lets be careful what we right here. This is our culture and most of us do n ot know much about it. so let be quite and stop misleading others.  Odutola means Ifatola (Odu is what comes out when Ifa is been consulted). Odutola=Ifa to ola Meaning ' Ifa is wealth'. That is if you have that oracle  you already have money. All you defined there are the translation of each phrase but these names are been shorthinged. One other thing, Olu is not the same as oluwa.  Ppl change Olu to Oluwa  with time. Olu is a yourba god.
