West African(ghana/Akan) names

When it comes to african names... many only touch the surface with Muslim names; like fatima.. and what not.... when there's so much more , to the point I feel there should be a distinction between muslim names and traditional west african Ghanaian/akan names.. Both are beautiful, I just don't like that one overshadows the other.. Anywho, without further or do, I give you...ghana/akan names ^^ (under construction; I have alot of names to add ^^) - Created by beebetree
