  • Baby Names - Here we go again

    One of my girlfriends is expecting a lil girl the end of March and wants some suggestions for names (SERIOUS SUGGESTIONS ONLY!!!) - the baby will only be like 1/4 Native but she would like a native name - the middle name is Duncan (her maiden name) and the last name Short (her married name) - so it will be ?? Duncan Short. I knew my powwows.com family would be more than happy to help!:Help

                    I think the Name
                    LADAYA sounds good.
                    Ladaya Duncan Short...I dont think its 'native' but its a nice name...
