Don't take offense RC that we're being politically incorrect. I gotta get back to work and don't want to open a can of worms for lunch

ROFL...LOL
I'm sorry I didn't see this sooner. You guys are a riot!!! Please carry on.

When some Indian names were translated into english, they came out as descriptive compounds like Sharpnose, Flathead, Yellowhair, Bentfoot, etc...

The Scottish name was americanized the same way, as a word descriptive of a physical characteristic.

No, I'm not telling 'cause this is just WAY too much fun!

Why do American Indians translate their names anyway? No other people do that, as far as I know.
