This isn't really a Native American name, it's a word which refers to their allies - and using it as a proper name is quite ignorant and insulting.

Dakota, Lakota and Nakota are "branches" of the Sioux tribe. Then, there are several "side branches", like Oglala and Yanktonai.

Comes from the "Lakota" tribe. Lakota is a m/f name, Native American origin meaning "alliance".
