The Akan ethnic group has certain names which are derived from the order of birth of the children.
For example the first/last born child has a special name so do twins and the child born after twins. See below details:
|Tawia||Male/Female||Akan||born after twin|
|Nyankomago||Male/Female||Akan||second born after a twin|
Do you have any comments or suggestions regarding the above? Or do you have similar information for other ethnic group(s) in Ghana? Please feel free to get in touch through firstname.lastname@example.org.
