Comment
Comments: 

The Yolngu Matha Dictionary describes daygurrgurr as a clan name, see dhuwala  N199 and gupapuyngu N122.1. Daygurrgurr is affiliated with Gupapuyngu N122.1 (Wilkinson 1991:13 and Schebeck, 2001:89). Dhaygurrgurr is named Dhawurrwurr and Dhayurrurr by different language groups (Schebeck, 2001:89).

Tindale (1974) lists Dajoror (N96) as an alternative name of Kupapuingu N122.1. See also Dhuwala N199. For Yolngu languages see Yolngu Matha N230.
