A Dictionary of Yoruba Personal Names is the outcome Of two decades of continual rather than continuous research at the University of Lagos.
It is not a dictionary featuring all Yoruba personal names; not at all. Instead it is a selection of twenty thousand Yoruba personal names covering all the dialect areas of Yoruba land.
It is an authoritative reference work that can be reliably used for checking up the correct pronunciation and meaning of given Yoruba names. Where the very name is not in this dictionary its likes are there and these will adequately give guidance.
