His first son was named, Mau-na-suntsh-ga [Mąnąksųčka], "Shakes the Earth by the Force of His Step"; his second son bore the name, Shounk-mau-no-nee-ga [Šųgᵋmąnųnįga], "Lost Dog" (probably a nickname); his third son was called, Mau-chgoo-[w]a-shiste-ga [Mąčguwašiška], "Breaks the Band [Bow] with the Force of His Feet." The male names seem to be those found in the Bear Clan.
Mąčguwašiška is from mąčgu, "bow"; wašíš, "to break something having length by pressure or pushing, not leaving a clean break"; and -ka, a definite article used in personal names.
