  1. This is awesome! Can we still add this name at this time "Oghenevwemu" (God is the owner of things)? And if the Nanes appear A-z order, it'll be fine, for quick search. Thank you so much!

  2. Believing that the urobobos have common similarity in names and their meanings like in the name AKPORIEFE means life full of wealth and IDONORIRE means money or wealth has come are both pronouns in uvwie languages, I want to be sure if they are both spelled correctly .

  3. Avwerosuogehe rely on God
