Itan is what the Yorùbá peoples of Africa call the sum total of all the myths, songs, histories and other cultural concepts which make up their religion and society. The itan are accepted as historically factual, and can be used to settle disputes. Enitan is one who knows all the stories, a learned person.

1. ENITAN is applicable to females as well [noted -ed]
2. The name is not given lightly. It is given when the birth circumstances of a child are fraught with major issues, sometimes of a scandalous nature.
3. "Person of Story" is a transliteration. A more correct translation is "A Person with history".
