    Native American names?

    I am trying to help a student who is writing a piece of historical fiction about a Native American girl, and she needs a name! I have not had much luck finding female names used by local tribes (we live in Oregon). Can anyone suggest female names that were/are used by Pacific Northwest Native Americans?

    Edit: I realized I should probably list some of the tribes in our area (at the risk of exposing my great ignorance for how they are organized): Coquille, Coos, Siuslaw, Santiam, Yoncalla, Chepenafa. But others from Washington or Oregon might also work for her project.

    Re: Native American names?

    This site has general Native American names, but not by tribe. Some general ones inlcude Winona and Tamis, but Google hasn't helped me find any names from these specific tribes! I did find a site that allowed you to search for names by tribe, but you have to write them. Sorry!
