Comment
Comments: 
This name appears in Berndt (1959) as well as Capell (1963) and Oates and Oates (1970) but there appears to be no linguistic information available. Tindale lists Milamada as an alternative name for Madoitja A41, which appears not to be a language name. The WA Handbook does not list this language. Based on the information available, Milamada is unlikely to be a language name.
