Isoko names and meanings

The Isokos are predominantly Christians and name their children after the acts and attributes of God. God is called “Oghene” in the Isoko language, and as such, you will find most Isoko names beginning or ending with Oghene.

The Isoko People

According to Wikipedia, the Isoko are a Nigerian indigenous ethnic group who live in the Isoko region of Delta and Bayelsa states.

The Isokos speak the Isoko language, a language of the Kwa branch of the Niger-Congo family, which is also very linguistically similar to the Urhobo language, Epie-Atissa language and Engenni language.

The Isoko culture is related to several cultures in the Niger Delta – namely, Urhobo, Ijaw and Anioma.

Because Urhobo and Isoko are related in language and culture, invaders incorrectly labeled the Urhobo and Isoko cultural groups as “Sobo.” If the Isoko tribe had been a man, Urhobo would have been his twin brother.

Because of the strong influence of Western civilization, the majority of the Isoko people have become Christians. Nonetheless, traditional worship continues to thrive among them.

The Isoko ethnic group consists of nineteen clans: Uzere, Ozoro, Erowha, Owhe, Iyede, Okpe, Emede, Igbide, Emevor, Ofagbe, Ellu, Oyede, Umeh, Irri, Aviara, Olomoro, Enwhe, Okpolo and Oleh.

The Isoko region provides 28 percent of crude oil and gas to the Nigerian economy.
