"born on Wednesday"

Akua Origin and Meaning

The name Akua is a girl's name meaning "born on Wednesday".

The people of Ghana and the Ivory Coast frequently name their children after the day of the week they were born and the order in which they were born. Most Ghanaians have a name using this system (think Kofi Annan, whose name means born on a Friday).

Akua (and also Akuba) is the female name for babies born on a Wednesday (the male variant is Kwaku).
