The information contained in this page comes from a book entitled Your Name in Cherokee written by Prentice Robinson

Because language is the foundation of different tribal identifications, those wishing to be a part of their culture feel even more identity with their heritage when they have a tribal name or know how to pronounce and write their English name in their language. I have tried to provide some help through this writing.

The purpose of these pages is to answer the often asked question, "How do you write and say my name in Cherokee?" There may be many names not included, especially Cherokee names rather than English names spoken in Cherokee. You may discover names of people you know who have an English name and a Cherokee name that is spoke differently. That is because the given Cherokee name is in fact a different name having a different meaning than the English name.

Most English names can be pronounced in Cherokee tones or phonetics, however there are some sounds in English such as B, R, and P that cannot be sounded in Cherokee. The sounds in the seventh row of the syllabary are used for B, R, and P. The sounds used to pronounce them are according to their usage in the New Testament translation work of linguist and Greek scholar, the Reverend Dr. Samuel Austin Worcester. The B sound in Abraham is qua. The B is Bill goes to wi sound. One reason for wi is the name Bill could be that the root word for Bill is William or Willie. The R in Robert is qua. The P in Paul is quo. The P in Peter is qui, and the P in Phillip is qui. The secondary tones following the B, R, or P helps to determine which is used.

A parenthesis around some of the syllables indicates that the syllable is silent. To pronounce a word with a silent syllable you put the first letter tone with the preceding syllable. For example, Alfred has two silent syllables, e(li)qui(di) and is pronounced Al Kwed.
