Ohene is a name for boys, meaning “king.” While it’s a Ghanian name, it’s more specific to the Ghanian Akan tribe, who controlled gold mining and trading in the region from the 15th to the 19th century, making them one of the most powerful and wealthiest groups. Notable individuals of Akan origin include Kwame Nkrumah, the first President of Ghana, and Kofi Annan, the first black man to head the United Heads organization. Naming your little one Ohene is to imbue your child with the luck of Akan, and just maybe your little king will grow up to be a great leader too.
