Ghanaian Names

The birth day of each child born in Ghana is very important. A girl could be Akosia or Akua or Ama, depending on the day of the week she is born. Boys frequently have names beginning with the letter K. Kofi, as in Kofi Annan, means boy born on Friday. This name often becomes part of their house name, and sometimes part of their more formal school names.
