Reply to: Ecuadorian and/or Quechuan names by quechua
These are some native names I found. I'm posting them to share as I found origin and meaning!!. I'm not sure how reliable this source is, but it seems really interesting!!

Just so you know, Mapuche is a native tribe that inhabits Chile, Quechua is a native tribe that inhabits Perú, The Aymara on the Bolivian and Peruvian Highlands, Tupí are a Brazilian civilization and the Guaraní are from Paraguay,(All of them South American).

I will take a shot at prn. as I don't speak any of these native languages, but I have somewhat of an idea of how to say them...
