Oyda is the name by which the language and its speakers, as well as the area in which the people reside, is known. Oyda elders relate the origin of their ethnic and language name to the homonym ?oida 'a seat'. By this identification their ancestors allegedly wanted to indicate the comfort and hospitality that the place seemed to offer to them after their long travel from southeastern and northwestern direction, when they declared: 'this is the place to be, this is the seat'.
