There is no Universal truth on the Naming Convention of different tribes!
There are perhaps 1000 different ways that parents of each tribe name a child. Some at birth, some after they became a year old, some have several names like a private name, a public name ect ect...

So when asking an open ended question such as what do you think
I would reply
It Depends
On the Tribe
When it was, for naming is different today as was 100 years ago!
And don't get me started on Surnames!!

As for some of my Kinfolks the name is that a name
Big Mush
WhiteMan Killer
Floating Dog or Literally Dog that floats from the bottom
Thank you so much for taking your time to answer my post :)

I really want to connect to my Native roots and just trying to learn as I go along.

You are so gracious.
