Khoisan

_____________________________________________________

A composite name compounded of 'Khoikhoi' and 'San', coined by the German anthropologist and perpetuated in its anglicized form by Prof. Isaac Schapera in his book The Khoisan peoples of South Africa, 1930. As the two peoples differ in origin and culture and as the word 'San' is a demeaning name to the Bushmen there would appear to be little purpose in retaining such a collective name for them and I [Walton] have not used it.

(Walton, 1995: 125)
