From the lesson, you will learn the Twi names of the days of the week. I will also introduce you to a special form of naming by the Akan people that is based on the specific day of the week that one is born.

Days of the Week in Twi

The Akan people have a naming system by which people get named based on the day of the week that they are born. We call these “day names” Kradin (Soul names). Below, I list the days of the week in Twi, along with the respective male and female soul names given to persons born on each day.
