Ewe (Eʋe) Names and their meanings

by Jake Wyatt

Last updated on 20th September, 2022

Ewe people can be found in Ghana, Benin, Togo, as well as a few other West African countries.

Most given Ewe names have stories behind them, and parents frequently choose a name for their child based on a variety of considerations.

For instance, a mother who is thankful for her newborn may name the child Akpe which means “Thank you”. (You represent the creator in this context)

Sometimes parents name their child based on a situation they find themselves in. Others name their children after people whose lives are worth emulating. Some parents give their children specific names because he/she is the only surviving child. Here’s a compilation of Ewe (Eʋe) names and their meanings. Most of these names are gender-neutral.
