White Breast's 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 [Mąčguwąšiška], "Breaks the Band [Bow] with the Force of His Feet." The male names seem to be those found in the Bear Clan. (Dieterle, Jipson)
The name Mąnąksųčka comes form mą, "earth"; nąksų́č , "to shake"; and -ka, a definite article used in personal names.
Two of these brothers may have been living in the Koshkonong Village of their forefathers under synonymous names, which occur frequently enough. Mąčgúnąšéška and Mągíksųčka were both living in that village in 1832. (Kinzie) The younger brother, Mąnąksųčka/Mągíksųčka received no allotment payment, probably because he was a minor living in a lodge with two women and one child (himself). Mąčguwąšiška/Mąčgúnąšéška was, it seems, the older brother, living in a lodge with two other men, two women, and five children.
