Dear Iker,
Please find below a few names in Ese Ejja (ESE, Takanan), a language spoken in the Bolivian and Peruvian lowlands:

River name: I'ba'bianijji (i'ba'bi-ani-jji ray-be-NMZ 'Where they are rays / where rays are to be') in Alexiades & Peluso (2003:93).
Person name: Medio'ba'e (Medio-float;live '(the one who) lives (in) Medio), Ena'ba'e (water-float;live '(the one who) lives (in/by) the water). See Vuillermet (2012 : 311) for remarks on the unexpected syntax of those 2 names.


Alexiades, M. and Peluso, D. 2003. "La sociedad ese eja: una aproximación histórica a sus orígenes, distribución, asentamiento y subsistencia." In B. Huertas C. and A. García A. (eds), Los Pueblos Indígenas de Madre de Dios: Historia, etnografía y coyuntura., IWGIA, Lima, pp. 91-110.
