Adwoa is a given name used for women born on Monday in Western Africa, particularly Ghana and some parts of Togo and Ivory Coast.[1] Day names are a cultural practice of the Akan people of Ghana and the Ivory Coast. Although some might believe it is mostly practiced by Ashanti people, it is actually practiced by all Akan (I.E. all the various Akan subgroups) people who follow traditional customs. Most Ghanaian children have their cultural names in combination with their English or Christian names. It can be spelled in various ways, including Adwoa, Adjoa, Ajua, or Ajuba. The spelling of the name usually indicates where in Ghana the person is from and with which clan they are associated. Its male equivalent is Kwadwo, which also has variations depending on whether the parents are Ashanti, Fante, Ewe, or Ga.

'Adwoa' could mean someone who is philosophical, determined and intense with a desire to endure, and often religious.
