And we spoke to those eho christened their children with funky names…
Mrs Aina
I waited for ten years before having her. I just wanted a name deep enough to express my gratitude to God. That was why I gave my daughter
Oluwatikararesemilore.
Mrs Esther
It was difficult conceiving after I had my first child. Even when I became pregnant again, it was all negative reports. I eventually had him through C.S and we almost lost him so I gave him Eninlaloluwa.
Mrs Ajayi
I named my daughter Oluwafikayomi because I had a delay of six years
between my first child and the second one. When I had her, I gave her that name to show that God has added to my joy.
