Default Does anyone know the Swahilian word for tiger?? See post for details.

I want to name my tiger snake "tiger snake" in a different language. I've decided on Swahili but I cant find the word for tiger! I only have snake (nyoka.) Can someone help? Also, if this is in the wrong place, sorry!

There are no tigers in Africa and no word for tiger in Swahili. They just use the word "tiger."

---------- Bellinghamster added 18 Minutes and 35 Seconds later ----------

you can call it a "snake that has stripes" which would be nyoka mwenye milia. The descriptive for "tiger" is chui mwenye milia, which means leopard that has stripes.

You are very welcome! I have a degree in Linguistics, so I can look up whatever language and figure out names for people.

Maybe I should set up my own name shop!

that would be cool! I'm off to adopt Nyoka Mwenye Milia!!!

---------- goodmorning2u added 8 Minutes and 48 Seconds later ----------

well the IA part of Milia won't fit so her name is Nyoka Mwenye. (does that mean snake that has or snake stripes?? I'll check an online dictionary!

---------- goodmorning2u added 6 Minutes and 55 Seconds later ----------

nvm I just won't use spaces

Well, that would mean "snake that has" but it wouldn't make any sense since you have to have a noun to qualify... Milia is "stripes"

Good show! I do that a lot. I don't like that they put a limit on how long the names are, but I guess they have to cut us off somewhere!

Ah well, back to the drawing board for me...
