Days of the week in Akan (Twi) / Soul Names (Kradin)[edit | edit source]

The Akan people give names to people based on the day of the week they were born. We call these "day names" Kradin (soul names). Below I list the days of the week in Twi, along with the male and female soul names given to people born each day.
