Surname Saturday: Cherokee Names

Last Saturday I was at the Cherokee Heritage Center in Tahlequah, Ok. While searching for my family surnames of Deerskin, Waterjug and Buckskin, I found some other interesting surnames.
Rainstopper, Crying Wolf, Pigeon Lifter, Bull Frog, Crying Bird, Hogshooter, Club Foot and Deer Track.

Some full names I discovered that are noteworthy...
Glass Tumbler, Spring Frogg, Floating Dog, Rattle Snake Blackbird, Young Squirrel, Standing Man, Winter Grapes, Deer Killer, Dreadful Water, Corn Silk, Crying Buffalo, Rain Crow, Cold Weather, and my favorite, Sucky Graves
