Before the country attained independence, the country was called Gold Coast. After independence, the name was changed to Ghana. However, many Ghanaians still do not know how the name Ghana came about. In my primary school days, I was deceived by my colleagues that the full meaning of Ghana is "God Has Appointed Nkrumah Already" which I later got to realize that it was someone's creative knowledge that led to that.So I started searching for how the name Ghana came about and this is what I found which I would like to share with you.

The name Ghana was coined from a Soninke Language which means "Warrior King". So this is the meaning of Ghana. As a citizen and not a spectator, you indeed have to know how the name of your country came about. You should also know how your village's name was coined and why that name. It is very important to know your roots.
