That's true of Manding languages, but they aren't all called Mandinka. There's Mandinka, Maninka (Malinke, Malinka), and Maninkakan at least. Maninkakan and Maninka have several varieties. I'm not sure about different varieties of Mandinka itself, but probably some people call Maninka "Mandinka" so in that case there would be. The names can get a bit complicated.
Bambara and Dyula are in the Manding language group, too. So is the language called Xaasongaxango (aka Khassonké).
