I'm trying to figure out a word or at least a meaning in Zulu, something complex enough that a random internet translator can't really manage. Anyone here know Zulu word structure?

I'm trying to combine the word 'Ukhozi', Eagle, with the suffix -phatha, 'in command', for the name of a character who is a chief within the Zulu empire in the books I'm writing with a friend. Not sure exactly how such a combination of root and suffix works in the language.
