     They are meant to herald great events and are to be celebrated, as these aptly named babies are welcomed into the tribe.

NATIVE AMERICAN FEMALE NAMES and MEANINGS

HOW TO GIVE YOUR BABY A NATIVE AMERICAN NAME

Keep in mind that these names come from various parts of the country and can be derived from different cultures.

The spellings and meaning may vary slightly or greatly from region to region - check with your family or other resources if this is important in naming your child.

You may also want to explore the "naming" customs of the particular tribe's name that you are using.

It is also important that you create your own name (in other words, decide on a meaning and have it translated). Rather than finding a name and then looking up what it means.

It will have more meaning than a "stock" name, and, in many tribes, this was the only way naming was done.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST...
If you do choose a name from a baby book or such, do some research so you can-

1: Be sure the pronunciation is right, and
2: Be sure it means what the book says it means.
