Native American names often have such poetry to them, just the way they sound, and the things you find out that they mean.

I LOVE this! The names roll off the tongue and the imagination. I especially love Native American and Canadian First Nations names, for their beauty and history.

Beautiful names, fun to say. Full of history, they don't want us to know.

An unique list, I, too, love the language, love to hear it spoken. All from ancient history, one that I have never known. :-)

Even to read them silently on the page is to start to feel them roll around my mouth. Any minute and I'll be able to taste them!

This has such a rhythm - reminds me of these jump rope sing songy rounds we used to do. This is so fun to say!!

Aw.. not fair! You got all the cool names! Even as far south as I am, and half a world away, the dignity of these names rings true.
