Hi Margaret,

Here’s one possibility - Karrama is the Jaminjung name for the Murrinhpatha people.

Regards, Felicity

Karama is a suburb of Darwin. This is one of a number of suburbs named after Indigenous languages and clan groups.

When I consult the NT Placenames register it says this:

Karama is a Aboriginal tribal name, one of a number that Douglas Lockwood suggested might be used in 1964.

Does anyone have any more information about the provenance of this name?
