The name given by Jipson (241) is Ahosojwaywinka, which is for Ahusojerawįga, "She Whose Feathers are Worn." The word ahu means "feathers"; -wį-, is an infix indicating feminine gender; and -ga, is a definite article suffix used in personal names. The remaining portion of the name, sojera, is only found embedded in the word sojeraíreną, "they became worn out" (sojera-íre-ną, where -ire is the third person plural suffix, and -ną, terminates a clause or sentence known to be true from the speaker's own experience). So Ahu-sojera-wį-ga means, "She Whose Feathers are Worn Out."
