Hi, Ummita
I just wanna let u know that Asibi is not a Hausa traditional name,it is a name that Alago tribe called a girl who was born on Saturday. But the name was originated from a Hausa name Asabe. U can learn more about this if u check one B.A. Dissertation title "Dangantakar Al'adun Hausawa Da Na Kabilar Alago Da Ke Cikin Karamar Hukumar Doma Ta Jahar Nassarawa" Department of Nigerian Languages Bayero University, Kano.
Thank U.

I question the word "bature" being used as a traditional Hausa name.  Any comments?

Bature means white man. So bature being a Hausa word makes the name a Hausa name. But if you can help define 'traditional' from your pespective with regard to name, then we can argue further or see where you are coming from

Is it safe to assume that almost all hausa traditonal names are associated with the events, circumstances, locations etc surrounding the birth of the child?

A lot of them are, but not all. It's the same as in other cultures. In Hausa we have names like Wada (m) and Yalwa (f) which mean 'abundance' and are given to ensure wealth, most English names such as Jane, Mark etc had meanings too, but the meanings have been lost over centuries as the language evolved. The same way some Hausa names such as Yaquled, Turunku, Bakwa, Daurama etc are just plain names to us because their meanings have been lost because that version of Hausa is no longer spoken.

Lol! And here ws I thinking the name "Wada" has its origin from a dwarf  ;D. Now, I have a colleague named Wadata. Is that a shortened form of 'Wada'? Because Wadata refers to affluence or abundance in a much better way than simply Wada.

Exactly, Wada, came from 'Wadata'. the name is given to ensure wealth/affluence.
