- Meanings and history of the name Wayonka
Onka means "series" or "counter" in Yoruba. Way in English means either "a road, track, path, or street for traveling along" or "a method, style, or manner of doing something."
This name can translate to "a series of paths" or "counting roads" or even "considering all methods or styles."
Wayonka would be a girl who considers all options and keeps her mind open, which I think defiantly reflects upon the name.
Also, "counter" can mean "counter attack." The name Wayokna can then mean "a method of countering." Your little Wayonka could be defensive, in a good way most likely.
The similar name, Waynoka, is a Native American name meaning "graceful" or "clean water."
