Meaning of Ìlarí
This is a name given to a member of the king group of servants mostly in Ọ̀yọ́.
"Among the Lukumí in Cuba, this name has been retained. Its significance is understood to mean "King's (Shangó's) Messenger." It surely plays on the theme of the Ọ̀yọ́ palace Ìlàrís. It is accentuated according to Spanish grammatical dictates, as were all names in Cuba, as 'Ilarí Obá.'"
