If your little one is giving hump day a whole new revamp with their anticipated arrival, Yooku may be the one. This masculine moniker is said to be a version of Kweku, Kwaku, or Kuuku of Ghanaian origin. A playful-sounding name, it honors the Akan tradition of naming children after the day they were born. Meaning “born on Wednesday” and linked to the spider, this Akan name will help baby Yooku stay closely knitted with their roots.
