    Saturday - Ama, Amma
    Sunday - Akosua, Esi, Kisi

    Do you like any of the names?

    They also say that babies born on a certain day of the week will have certain characteristics.

    Monday's child is the father or mother in the family; nurturing in nature, dependable and organized, and protective of his/her family.
    Tuesday's child is the problem solver and planner of the family. They are structured in nature, neutral in all matters and never take sides.
    Wednesday's child is fully in control of every situation, does not want to be told what to do, knows it all, is spontaneous, vibrant and cordial.
    Thursday's child is quiet in nature and incredibly observant. They are generally listeners, not talkers, and analyzes situations very well.
    Friday's child is a leader, not a follower. He/she is very temperamental but has a big heart. Generally the instigator of everything.
    Saturday's child likes to take control of family situations. He/she runs the show and make the rules, but will go out of his/her way for others any time.
    Sunday's child is the passive, sensitive and warm member of the family. He/she tends to be shy and likes to keep to his/her self, but is very aware of his/her surroundings and usually is the secret keeper of the family.

    Do you know what day of the week your children were born and do they fit into the characteristic for that day?

    Thanks in advance.
