I thouht that today I would blog about the cafemom topic "name origin"

My name is Cherokee, and it comes from my great great great grandmother who was Cherokee. 

The name means Kind, caring, and loving, and marrow (like bone marrow).  My middle name is Cheyenne LOL it means tribe of the great plains.  

 My daughter's name is Cherokee as well, but also has an arabic root as well.  Her name Kamilah means Precious one in Cherokee and Perfect One in Arabic.  Her middle name is Noelle and means gift.  And in the old testament names that ended in "ah" meant "of god" so Kamilah is our "Precious Gift of God" 

 Kamilah's nickname is Kami which is a Japanese goddess or means goddess or something along those lines.
