Would you like to organize a great party for your little ones "> inventing Native Americans yourself

Indians are a people of nature and always associate themselves and their names with nature, animals, elements and spirits. Inventing an Indian name is therefore not so difficult. The typical, translated Native American names usually consist of several words and describe the person. When creating, just think of certain qualities of the one who should bear the name once. These features may then be associated, for example, with a particular animal, plant or element.

Examples

The little Amelie is the youngest among her siblings. A beautiful, Indian name for her would be:

Little sister

Ben loves to fight and is a real warrior. The perfect Indian name for him would be:

bear Claw

In this way, the most varied and individualized names can be created, which also stimulate the imagination. Especially children will like this because they find themselves in it and can integrate so much better even in a story.
