Why do Nigerian names start with Oluwa?

The Yoruba name for God is "Oluwa." According to Yoruba tradition, a child's name influences his or her future. That is why Yoruba people, particularly Christians, give their children names that include the name of God.

In Nigeria, especially among the Yoruba people, it is common practice for families to assign a number of values to each letter of the alphabet. These values can be as simple as colors, which are often associated with different traits and personalities. A family would therefore choose its child's name by choosing a letter for each value determined by them. In the case of Oluwa, here are the values assigned to the letters:

O - this letter represents power, strength, wisdom, intellect, and beauty.

L - this letter represents life, love, joy, happiness, peace, and healing.

U - this letter represents unity. Family ties, friendship, forgiveness, and protection are some examples of what this letter stands for.

A - this letter represents action. It also represents ability, achievement, ambition, and courage.

N - this letter represents nature. Nature itself, knowledge, creativity, and imagination are some examples of what this letter means.

What does "tundra" mean in Russian?

The word "tundra" is derived from the Kildin Sami word "tundar," which means "uplands" or "treeless mountain tract." Dwarf shrubs, sedges, grasses, mosses, and lichens make up the tundra vegetation. Some tundra areas have scattered trees. The most abundant species are willow (Salix), alder (Alnus), birch (Betula), and poplar (Populus). Other species include cypress (Cupressus), elm (Ulmus), horse-chestnut (Acer), lime (Tilia), maple (Acer), pine (Pinus), sycamore (Platanus), and walnut (Juglans).

Dwarf willows grow in wet places with very cold winters. They use their thickened roots to trap small particles of soil that would otherwise be washed away by rain. This helps them survive the harsh conditions found in damp regions near bodies of water. Alder grows in similar conditions but prefers more alkaline soils. It produces yellow flowers in late spring before new leaves appear. Birch grows in colder climates than willow and alder and can reach 80 feet high. Its bark is used for timber and charcoal. Poplar is a fast-growing tree common in Europe and Asia that was originally imported into Russia as an avenue tree.
