Comment
Comments: 
In recent times the name Nganawongka has been associated with A37 but the origin of this name is unknown. Up until 1996 Nana (-jara) (-wanga) was used. As all items use this spelling, and there is no information about the origin of Nganawongka, Nanadjara is now used in both AUSTLANG and the Thesaurus.
