Sioux Lakota Names for Boys
We have accompanied our list of Lakota Names for boys and girls with some stunning pictures of American Native Indians.
Some tribes, such as the Sioux, had a complicated naming system with six classes of names which incorporated Birth Names, Nicknames, Honor Names, special deed Names, Secret and Spirit names.
The sacred and spirit names were only known to the individual and the Medicine Man.
This website contains facts and interesting information about the culture, history and traditions of different Native American tribes which we hope will add additional interest for those searching for unusual Lakota Names.
