disagree  Marsha Wilkie: A matrilineal name is not the same as a totemic name. A totemic name can also be patrilineal. I studied Anthropology at the university and I am sure about it.

  -> the translation doesn't deny your assertion but the Spanish says matrilineal or totemic so take it up with the writer not the messenger.
