Meaning of Ẹniìtàn
1. A historical personage, one born in ways and manners to be remembered. 2. a person with history. (Translation courtesy of Prof. Kole Ọmọ́tọ́ṣọ́)
The name is given to a child believed to embody a specific history that is worthy of remembering. Perhaps a notable event occasioned his/her birth. In the case of Ọọ̀ni Ògúnwùsì, he was so-named because he was born at the exact time it was predicted that he would be born. The name is often, incorrectly, written as Ẹnitàn.
Glossẹni - person
ìtàn - story, history
