Oruko lonro ni
In the language of the Yoruba, an ethnic group living
primarily in Nigeria and other West African countries,
oruko lonri ni translates as “names affect behavior.”
This belief, common among the Yoruba people, refers to
the idea that people live up to the names given to them by
others or even chosen by themselves.
How would you apply this word to your life?
“…no two selves, no two consciousnesses, no
two minds are exactly alike. Each of us is
therefore situated to make a unique
contribution to the world.”
Howard Gardner, Psychologist and Educator
