Native American names are unique in their kind, since they do not have literal analogues in any other language.
Nevertheless, everything that we know about Indian names, remains only the tip of the iceberg. Let's try to clarify the situation a little.
For example, how many people know that names,which in the course of a single tribe, may not be used at all from another? Or the fact that Indian names (male and female) in some tribes coincide?
In addition, every Indian of the tribe canexist several names. One of them will often be used in everyday life, while the second will only be known to relatives and close people. This is the so-called spiritual, or true name, which defines the shaman.
True Indian names are never called aliens, because there are beliefs that such actions will bring misfortunes and misfortunes not only to a particular person, but to all his kind.
For example, you can consider the names of the tribeOjibways. These complex Native American names (women's) consist of several: first the parents are called at birth, the second is awarded at the Meade ceremony (a kind of baptism), and the third is given by fellow tribesmen and is used as a nickname. The result of such traditions is the frequent repetition of names. Most often they include the words "sky", "earth", "bird", "stone".
The following are the most common Indian names:
1. Educated from the word "cloud":
Binasivanquad - Cloud of the Bird
2. Names received from the word "heaven":
3. Names, in the root of which lie the words "earth", "rock":
4. Names formed from the words "seated" and "standing":
5. Names that have come from the word "bird":
