For the surname, see Erinle (surname).

Erinle (known as Inlé in Latin America) is an Orisha. He is a spirit of abundance, and is believed to serve as both a healer and the patron of homosexuals and feminosexuals. He is said to live in the forest with his brothers Ogun, Oshosi, and Osanyin for part of the time. The rest is spent in the farm with Oko. Usually depicted as being associated with both Yemoja and Otin, he has also been shown to co-habit with Oshun in her river. The Erinle River, a tributary of the Oshun River, takes his name.
