One good way of promoting the culture of any tribe is "naming". In Esan land we give native names with good meanings to our Children.
This at one point helps us promote our culture. Just like the popular MTV VJ bearing Ehiz (Ehis in Esan).
Doing this help the esan culture thrive.
Below is a list of Esan names contributed by people from all LGAs in Esan land. This list is constantly updated by esan people like you.
