Say my name again

    "No really say it again. I forgot my name." Unless you've suffered from amnesia you've probably never said these words.  Yesterday, I did. 
     This week I was given a Baoule' name. In this language, names are given according to which day of the week you are born. So because I was born on a Tuesday my name is Konadio. 
    If you are wondering what your Baoule' name is you can use this chart to find out. Just don't ask me how to pronounce it.
