Frafra Names And Their Incredible Meanings

Culture is said to be the way of life of a group of people. In the Akan setting, babies are named on the eight day after their birth at the premises of the father. Children in the Akan setting are christened with names given to them by their fathers.

Children in the Frafra setting are also given names as an element of their culture. The frafras organise their naming ceremonies for their female children on the fourth day after birth whereas boys are given names on the third day after birth.

Names are an integral part of culture and helps make individuals unique from other individuals. Giving a child a name socializes the child into the physical world and incorporates him/her into the community and the larger family.
