The name given by Jipson (241) is Wakanjapinwinka which is for Wakąjapįwįga. This name is from, Wakąja, "Thunderbird"; pį, "good"; -wį-, an infix indicating feminine gender; and -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names. The name therefore means, "Good Thunderbird Woman."
In the 1905 census, her name is given as "Ella," and recorded as the wife of Charles Greengrass.
