Meaning:God of war and metals
Ogun is a Nigerian name for boys. While it may also be spelled as Ogoun, Oggun, and Ogum, Ogun is a god of war and metals in the Yoruban religion. Followers of this deity swear to tell the truth in court by kissing a piece of iron in his name because he is described as being straightforward. But he is venerated more for his ability to face danger. Choosing the name Ogun for your little one can surely inspire them to be honest and look adversity in the eye.
