I hope I spelled it right! OJIBWE?

The reason I ask is because I once gave the name Ghad Zghied to someone in a Native American Indian chatroom and they told me it roughly translated to:

***** ** *****

I really would like to verify the translation so if anyone can help.....

Thank you!

Yes there is! The name I would like translating is Ghad Zghied!!

Into what? Why OJIBWE of course.

I aint gonna say what the other guy said it translated into because I'm trying to determine if he was telling the truth.

There were three words ***** ** *****

U savvy?

No need to be snipey. Just trying to help.

Have you gone to American-Indian websites and sent a few emails?

Maybe that would be the way to go.

I wish you luck.

Your spelling looks more German than Ojibwe. Also, Ojibwe doesn't appear to have an "H" sound.

Here's a translation site and a few words that look related.


www.first-ojibwe.net...
"Ghad Zghied" maybe gad zhagad - or ga dazhagad ???


gad- - future tense prefix for 1st & 2nd person before vowels (pv) (CH)
zaagi' - love smb. (vta) (CH)
zaagi' - treasure smb. (vta) (CH)
zaga'(w-) - fasten smb. together (vta) (CH)

ga- - future tense verb prefix when personal prefix is used
dazhi- - (see: endazhi) there; in that place

zhegon- - pokes it in

That translation sounds obscene to me.

Doesnt sound like a name.

It's quite a traditional name actually. "He who pokes himself."











I made that up. I don't speak Ojibwe. I just like doing a bit of research now and then and occasionally exercising my critical thinking skills and imagination.

I said the spelling looked more German than Ojibwe - and it does. It also looks more Khazakistani than Ojibwe.

Point being that the phonetic presentation as"Ghad Zghied" is not Ojibwe - so other spellings needed to be found.

Hope that helps with your confusion.

Sofi's right... it's not Ojibwe. I do agree that it sounds more Khazak or Russian.

It sound like to me "GIIZHIGAD" which means It is day. Mino-giizhigad = Good Day, though the spelling you gave is quite strange. Or Gid-izhichige which means - You are doing.
