Idoma Ayinya!

Looking for meaningful masculine Idoma names for your Idoma prince? We are happy to help!

The Idoma people are the second largest ethnic group in Benue State Nigeria, with an estimated population of about 3.5 million.

They occupy nine local government areas in western Benue State. These include Ado, Agatu, Apa, Obi, Ohimini, Ogbadibo, Oju, Okpokwu, and Otukpo.

Interestingly, the Idoma people are not only found in Benue state.  A few of them are also found  in Nasarawa and Cross Rivers State.

In terms of culture, the Idomas boast of a rich cultural heritage. Notably, the vibrant red and black traditional attire called ‘Apa’.

The spoken language of the Idoma people is classified as the Akweya subgroup of the Idomoid languages of the Volta–Niger family. However, there are subtle dialectical differences in the Idoma language spoken across the various local government areas.
