In Hocąk, the name "Green Buffalo Woman" would be Cecowįga, from ce, "buffalo"; co, "the color spanning the spectrum from green though blue";-wį-, a feminine gender suffix; and -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names. Given the meaning of co, the name could also mean, "Blue Buffalo Woman." It looks as if it were a Buffalo Clan name, but since in mythology, buffaloes represent stars, it may refer to a star that is bright enough to be seen in the blue sky.
