Adéṣọ̀kàn

Pronounciation



Meaning of Adéṣọ̀kàn

The crown [as symbol of nobility] is not unified, i.e. cannot be monopolized.



Extended Meaning

The obtainment of title is not only hereditary, which is perhaps another way of saying that no one is born to rule. In everyday usage, the sounding of this name loses some of the nuance in the original coining: Adéèṣọ̀kàn.
