Product Description

In conjunction with this weekend’s celebration of King’s Day at Ganlodo, His Imperial Majesty Axosu Agelogbagan Jisovi Agbovi I has released his 21st publication, Afrikan Vodun Names: Reclaim, Rename, ReAfrikanize. Never before has a book of close to 600 authentic Afrikan Aja culture Vodun names been published. This is not just a book of names and their meanings, but this book delves into the culture of naming and the relevance of the process from the Vodun perspective. Also mentioned with many of the names, is the Kpoli Fa, or Odu Ifa where these names are found within Vodun culture. 

Additionally, these are many of the authentic Aja/Fon names that would have been carried by those Afrikans who were forced onto the captive ship (so called slave ship) Clotilda that brought Afrikan captives from Danxome (Dahomey, now Southern Benin Republic West Afrika) to Mobile, Alabama in 1860.

From the book:

"In some cases, the name at birth is only the first of several names a person will bear throughout life. Some names come through divination, initiation and other rites of passages. In many cases, we view the name as a contract between the individual and spirit; a reminder of what one is here to do, to be. What exactly is in a name? Well, history is in a name. Tradition is in a name. Lineage, beauty, prosperity, strength and cultural celebration are in a name. Pride is in a name. Distinction is in a name. Appreciation, dignity, and respect can all be found in a name."

It should be noted that we also provide spiritual services to the general Afrikan community such as:


General Ifa divinations


Roots Readings/Ipilese Fa - Detailed Fa reading that speaks on your true ancestral origins, ancestral family and clan names, the names of the ancestors you descend from on both sides, the years in which they were put into captivity, family occupations and family deities, family "curses" or spiritual ailments and how to remove them and much more


Zoto Readings - a Fa reading specific to the Aja culture of Benin, Togo, Parts of Southern Ghana, and Badagry SW Nigeria. This reading reveals your sponsoring ancestor. Among the Aja (also called Fon people) one's zoto is very important to know and is a major part of knowing one's destiny. The Zoto is the ancestral guiding light of the individual. This Zoto often has left the earth without fulfilling a key mission in life. This, they will hope to achieve, through the living descendant that he/she sponsors.
