Means "joy is multiplied" or "salvation increases" in Yoruba, composed of the element õlà "salvation, that which saves, cause of salvation" combined with bi-si "to multiply, increase, replenish". Famous bearers include Victor Olabisi Onabanjo (died 1990), a former governor of Ogun State in Nigeria, and Nigerian female athlete Olabisi "Bisi" Afolabi (1975-).
