The Name Kaeori

Q: hello, I am a member of the Waccamaw Siouan tribe of eastern NC and I was wondering if the name Kaeori (Kay-or-ee) was of native American descent. I was also wondering about the names Kehonie (Keh-oh-nee) and Sahawhe ( Sa-ha-wee)?

A: No, "Kaeori" was invented for a science fiction character from an alien race by the owner of this baby name site, http://web.archive.org/web/20040612005208/http://www.dischord.net/kaeori/listframe.htm. She explicitly states that she made this name up herself (though she probably was influenced by the Japanese name Kaori.)

Never heard of either of the other names, but if you knew which language they were supposed to have come from, I could check them for you.

Have a good day!
