This is roughly true of some,not all ,Rihana-ye names. Thery tend to end in
-ba (man) or -ka (woman). In one relatively recent conhistorical example, as
readers may have noticed, thereare two rulers named Pitikiba and Pitikika,
literally "Hot High Kind Man" and "Hot High Kind Woman"--though "hot" here
really indicates "southern" and "high" here really means "royal." There are also
some names ending in -da, "child" though the names are retained by adults e.g.
Pitibada, literally hot porince, more exactly hot-high-man-child, really
meaning "son of the souithern consort"
