More names- male
I will give more when I am free, just in a hurry now. Read on and enjoying it. I like this.
Some beautiful Edo names of which the abbreviation "Amen" was or has been derived.
1) Ameghasihion.......Amen gha se ihion. This means what goes around comes around. What affects the eyes can affect the nose, the same as what affects the friend or enemy can come around so thou shall not revel in others misfortune.
2) Amenaghawuon......Amen ne agha wuon ele se omwan rae. This is referring to destiny. What is destined to be yours will never pass you by
3) Amowie.............Amen owie ne gbe orumwokpa....This is specific about the storm of life; it doesn't select or chose who it touches.
4) Ameze........ Amen eze eghi si ofo. Water from the stream will not cause you to sweat. A cool and calm manner can douse a red hot situation.
4) Egbebaloakhamen.....Egbe eghi balo akhe amen. The water pot is always cool and not often boiling. An elder or leader must be cool tempered.
Note...In writing Edo language, as in the instance of "Amen", there is supposed to be a dot (.) underneath the (e) but I have not been able to do that in this case, though I have tried but I am not really a computer genius so I have in some instance added (n) after the (e) to make is sound straight forward and easily understandable by the Edos' therefore (Amen) in this case should not be seen as a response to prayers in English, it simply means Water.
Open to correction.
