Cherokee has its own alphabet and its own naming rules, much like any other language. In Cherokee, syllables end in vowels so if your name ends in a consonant, like Megan , you become Megana. Seven is a very important number to the Cherokee spiritually. There were seven clans, seven levels to the Universe, and so on, which is why it was used in their naming. Cherokee society is matrilineal so the child takes its name from its mother. A prominent elderly woman would name the baby based on its appearance at birth or, resemblance to some object. The name given at birth was frequently a nickname that would be changed later according to deeds and life experience. A name was considered part of the personality and it was believed that injury would occur if the name was misused. Whether you saw something usable or not here, I hope you found this interesting. Until the next article with Choctaw names…happy naming!
