Why would Thonien'taká:ion, require so many white names:
I have seen:
Henry Trathoop
Honyost Schuyler
Hendrick Schuyler
Phillip Schuyler

I don't believe he did own all those names.
I think Henry Trathoop (Losses Sustained) is the only English name he had. Blatcup is a German insult, maybe used because it sounded like Trathoop. In my opinion, the other two are simply errors.

If Chief Moses Schuyler were Blatcup's son, wouldn't he be called by the name Moses Trathoop? Perhaps Moses Schuyler was simply Honyost Schuyler's son. Honyost Schuyler was friends with the Oneida during the Rev War. He was married to an Oneida woman. He lived in Oneida territory: German Flatts during the war and later in Chittenango. Draper interview said Honyost Schuyler was a Mohawk German living in Connestota fluent in Oneida.
