Ooh, scandalous. I love it. Pocahontas Salome is an especially good combo, I think.

This name is incredibly disrespectful and is a slur against Indigenous people. You wouldn't believe how many times this has been shouted at me in the street. And the white telling of Matoaka's story (which treats the sex trafficking of a child as romantic!) is directly related to violence against missing and murdered Indigenous women and two-spirits.
Please stop naming your characters and children this. Stop calling Indigenous people this get this awful word out of your mouths. Stop promoting violence against Indigenous people. Leave Matoaka alone!

I like the name because of the way is sounds and what it means.

Edith Wilson, second wife of President Woodrow Wilson, was a direct descendant of Pocahontas.

I've also seen her birth name given as "Mataoka" in several sources. I don't know which is more authentic or whether that can be determined.

I have too, but from multiple sources. I think they maybe should change the description to include that this maybe wasn't her given name. [noted -ed]

God, I thought Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily was bad, LOOK AT THIS! This is stupid! Katie: Here! John: Here! Pocahontas: (class roars with laughter) Here!

It should be obvious why this name shouldn't be used.

Pocahontas is the 1995 Disney movie. I really like 'The Virginia Company' and 'Steady As The Beating Drum', the first two songs in that movie.

This name is beautiful, it truly is. Unfortunately, it's bullying material for a typical non-American Indian child. I foresee a lot of stereotypical "war cries" complete with patting on the mouth. You know what I mean.

I love the meaning of this name.

Pocahontas was also known as Matoaka and Rebecca Rolfe.

In fact, Matoaka was Pocahontas's birth name. When she married a British subject, she was baptized Rebecca Rolfe. Pocahontas was a childhood pet name of Algonquin meaning (playful).
