Afua is a feminine Ghanaian name with Akan origins, ideal for the baby kicking off the weekend in style. Afua means “born on Friday,” following the Akan tradition of naming children after the day they were born. Linked to fertility by its variant Efua, Afua celebrates the value of life, the gift of birth, and existence itself. Even the Akan goddess of fertility shares this title, Asase Yaa known by the Fante people as Asase Efua, giving your little miracle a divine namesake to be proud of.
