Some Historical Ojibwe Names

  Ch|J


Note: please consult an Ojibwe elder who speaks the language before using any of these names for your children!

These names are 'coded' with a phonetic rendition of nineteenth-century government and missionaries' transcription of the sounds of Ahnishinahbæótjibway, Ojibwe, Cree and other languages.  Our initial intent, as we began computerization of our data in the 1980s, was to make it easier to find a person whose name was spelled variously - using computer searches.  The current 'sorting' is an artifact of Microsoft's programming.  The 'alphabetic' spellings are historical; the [bracketed] information codes the source of the information: particular spelling of a person's name, their approximate birth date, etc.
