kurow = town; pɔn = great: Great Town
It seems unlikely that this village could be regarded as a 'great town'. Perhaps it was founded by migrants from a town of that name. It is possible that this is the place to which KRA, p.138, refers: "Quant au village d'Akropon, il a été crée par un lignage de l'abusuan Ezohile venu d'Akropong dans le Wassa Amenfi."
