The female names given to various Haplogroup designations are taken from the book "Seven Daughters of Eve" by Dr. Bryan Sykes. According to Dr. Sykes, ninety five (95)% of all Europeans can be grouped in these seven haplogroups; others put the number of European haplogroups at 10-12. These additional "daughters" generally include haplogroups I, M and W[1]. A recent paper re-mapped European haplogroups as H, J, K, N1, T, U4, U5, V, X and W. Likewise, Sykes has identified an additional 29 "clan mothers" worldwide: "Fufei, Ina, Aiyana/Ai, Yumi, Nene, Naomi, Una, Uta, Ulrike, Uma, Ulla, Ulaana, Lara, Lamia, Lalamika, Latasha, Malaxshmi, Emiko, Gaia, Chochmingwu/Chie, Djigonasee/Sachi, Makeda, Lingaire, Lubaya, Limber, Lila, Lungile, Latifa and Layla."
