Meaning of Names


A little Native American boy asked his father, the big chief of the tribe, “Papa, why is it that we always have long names, while the white men have short names like Bill, John or Sam?”
His father replied, “The white men repeat their names from generation to generation. Our names have a deeper meaning.”
The son thought about it and asked, “What kind of meaning, Papa?”
“For example, your sister’s name is Small Romantic Moon Over The Lake, because on the night she was born, there was a beautiful moon reflected in the lake. Then there’s your brother, Big White Horse of the Prairies, because he was born on a day when the spirit of the big white horse appeared near our camp.”
The boy’s expression changed to a frazzled look as he was clearly trying to process something hard to understand. Seeing that, the Chief asked, “Do you have any other questions, Little Broken Condom Made in China?”
