In the history of man, and majorly among all African people, birth name, praise name or rather aliases are used to reflect what the bearer stands for. Names are very important means through which individuals in the society generally articulate and express their ideologies, boast about their abilities and accomplishments, as well as criticize that of other people. With particular reference to birth names given to males and females have impact for them to excell in various areas of human endeavors in African communities, praise-naming as a pragma-semiotic act ties up with constructions and deconstructions of power, and so does have serious implications for the meanings attached to it, as well as the roles of the numenclature in African tradio-religion system. It is thus not unexpected that Sa’adatu is religiously interpreted and revered to be ‘Fortunate’. Sa’adat is a name common to Middle Easterners and North Africans. “Saadat” means “luck” in Arabic
