AFIA.  African Akan name meaning "born on Friday."  Compare with Afuá.

... The farmers also keep the same day as their holiday; yet in consideration of Adam coming into existence on the sixth day of creation, they called the earth "Asase Afia" i.e. coming into existence on Friday—Adam is named from the earth—hence Friday is another holiday for farmers.
