Re: ZORMELO FAMILY
In Response To: Re: ZORMELO FAMILY ()

Hey i just saw this thread and just decided to add my "two cents". The name Zormelo means the Crocodile in the pot. It is from two words. ZOR which is the pot that holds the drinking water and ELO which is the crocodile.

The Appellations to the name ZORMELO is "Zormelo be yenye blublu, gake zor gborviwo ta" It is the Ewe language which literally translated means " The Croc living in the drinking pot says he knows how to make the drinking water muddy, but it is for the sake of those little ones who live by the pot (who drink from the pot)" It has a deep meaning. The Zormelo is saying he has the power to cause havoc, but for the sake of some innocent ones who may be harmed by the use of his powers he better remain calm and not use it.

Though i saw this question late i hope my contribution will help.
