Wakjagohoyka, "Returning with Victory," is more properly rendered as Wakjeguhega, from wakjé, "victory"; guhé, "coming back (to where one started from)"; and -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names.
In the 1911 census, Albert's birth order name is given as NaHiKa, which is for Naxiga, Forth Born Male. This means that he had not one, but three other brothers at one time.
