What’s your Ghanaian Name?
Traditionally, days of the week are very important aspects of the naming culture in Ghana. Babies are given a "day name" according to the day of the week on which they were born—along with other ancestral and religious names that are also given. These "day names" come in pairs for each specific day; one for males and the other for females. Below is a chart indicating the male/female names for each corresponding day of the week.
|Day of the Week||Male||Female|
For example: A baby boy born on Wednesday is called Kwaku, but a girl is called Akua.
