American Indian names reflect how the individual relates to their “spirits”. It is at the least, the “dust” of Avodah Zarah. An equivalent concept in western though is “saint’s names” or “patron saints”. Even in jest, frum Yidden wouldn’t even joke about who your patron saint is, or which avodah zarah is protecting you!June 9, 2014 3:17 pm at 3:17 pm #1019165

A young Jewish man falls in love with a Native American (aka: America Indian) woman and they decide to get married. When his mother hears the news, however, she is extremely distressed because she wanted him, of course, to marry a nice Jewish girl.
When she hears that not only is he marrying this Native American girl but has decided to live with her on the reservation, the mother becomes so upset that she refuses to even speak to the boy, practically disowning him.
After a year, the son telephones the mother to tell her that he and his wife are expecting a child. The mother is happy for him, but there is still quite a bit of tension in the air.
Nine months later, the son calls the mother again. “Mom,” he says, “just wanted you to know that last night my wife gave birth to a healthy baby boy. I also wanted to tell you that we’ve talked it over and we have decided to give the boy a Jewish name.”
Upon hearing this, the mother is overjoyed. “Oh, son, this is wonderful,” she gushes. “I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life. You have made me the happiest woman in the world.”
That’s great, Mom, ” replies the son.
And what, ” asks the mother, “is the baby’s name?”
The son proudly replies, “Smoked Whitefish.”June 10, 2014 3:07 am at 3:07 am #1019170

@rationalfrummie – It’s Hindi. 🙂 Kitabi is apparently “book” in Hindi, which makes sense, since the Hebrew word kotev (writing) is related to books…. It’s always cool to see how other languages may have been influenced by Lashon HaKodesh.June 11, 2014 1:15 am at 1:15 am #1019180
So nobody else really has an Indian name.
