Thanks to the wonderful international library 'interloan' system, I have recently managed to borrow a copy of Jack Berry's book, "The Place-Names of the Accra Region" (1958), which has a wealth of information in it. I have been able to locate about 70 of the places for which he gives meanings, and these have now been added to the database (Greater Accra). They are essentially analytical translations, and do not have local traditions of the origin of the names, so if anyone has additional information it would be very welcome.
