The names of the Akans, the indigenous people of Ghana, mean the day of the week on which they were born. It is believed that the days of the week affect the character and fate of a person, this is a kind of analogue of the signs of the zodiac. The tradition has become widespread in West Africa and among representatives of the African diaspora around the world. Ghanaian twins also receive a name prefix at birth, which indicates the order of their birth (oldest or youngest child). Nowadays, along with traditional Akan names, many Africans also take Western names for themselves.
