"My name is Dakotah and i'm a girl. I think it is a very unique name and not many people have it but i've been told it means friend. I also know two boys named Dakota and a girl named Dakota but without the h. It's not only a boys name. & normally a lot of people mispell my name." Dec. 5, 2009:
""My name is Dakotah. I'm 28, i'm a guy, and I am half Indian. Dakotah is a Lakota word meaning "ally", but I myself am Apache and Pueblo Indian. Lakota parents would not name their kids Dakotah... Almost all girls like the name for a guy, so if you are having a baby boy and want him to have an easy time with girls and people in general, think about this name. However this likely wont hold true if you and your kids are squares or nerds. I would not recommend the name to any weak-minded or very unattractive parents. And not that I have anything against ugly people or nerds. Best for artistic and openhearted parents. Oh yeah, not good for super white-bread families or hicks. No Republicans either. Never mispronounced or made fun of. Never been an obstacle to my professional career either. Very strong name and should be carried by strong individual. As a girls name, Dakota (notice spelling) is very pleasant as well in my opinion."" May. 11, 2009:
"My son is named Dakotah, I had only heard of one other person with that name when he was born. I chose to add the "h" so that it would be unique. Until I came across this website, I had never seen another Dakotah (with an h). His name could not suit him more. He will soon be 17 years old and every bit as rugged as the name would suggest."

"My son is named Dakotah, he has some Sioux in him. He fits his name well, as it means faithful friend in the Sioux language. I added the h because I didn't want people to confuse him with the state. It also sets him apart from the common spelling Dakota" Jul. 24, 2006:
