I was wondering if, according to lore, my khajiit name is valid.

My khajiit name is Jo'Taka.

Well, the prefix "Jo" means "wizard." Not sure about the second part. Not much is known about khajiit name meanings.

I did some light research, I mean very light.

Taka actaually means Scar, in the Lion King. Obviously, Kajhiit  being distinctly "feline" like bears a remarkable resemblance to "Lions", which is strictly obvious. Additionally, the Kajhiit race seems somewhat synonymous with African wild tribes "May your roads lead you to warm sand..." which is indicative of a desert or perhaps a tropical beech, although, Elsywyr seems much more like Africa, from what i've seen, maybe coastal Madagascar.   

Obviously, that is all pure conjecture and hypothesis, so you could theoretically say yes, lore friendly, but no, not techniqually, unless a word had not been invented for Taka. It sounds somewhat Tahitiian though, just watch that, something like Rajii or Agrara, perhaps?

 

Anyway, have a look at this, its a fairly comprehensive Kajhiit dictionary I found

Thank you all for your quick reply's, I checked all the links you provided and googled around some more and found this wiki post.

According to that this name should be valid: Jo'Zaar. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Nope, that seems fine! More Kahjiit like too
