John's Hocąk name was given as Connohuttenickaw. (Waggoner) This is a modified birth order name: Cono is a phonetic rendering of Kųnų, "First Son." The second part of the name, huttenickaw, is for xete (in earlier sources, sometimes xate), meaning "big, large, old"; nįk, "little, a bit"; and -ka, a definite article suffix used in personal names. The seemingly paradoxical xetenįk means, "larger." So the name as a whole means, "the Larger Kųnų," or "the First Son Who is a Bit Larger [than usual]."
He died on 9 September 1923, probably in Nebraska.
