Luo Name

The majority of people in my village are from the Luo tribe and have Luo names along with their given name.

Luo names are usually related to the day you were born.  What time of the day, was it stormy, born after twins, born with a cord around the neck, etc.  For more information go to http://namesite.com/ethnic/Luo

One of the teachers gave me my Luo name today.  I was born at 2:19 in the afternoon so my Luo name is Achieng which means “born at mid-day”
