Etymology of the name CHIGARU.
Meaning of the baby name CHIGARU.

  

CHIGARU.  African name meaning "like a large dog," from Chinyanja chigaru (a large dog). (A Grammar of Chinyanja, Henry, 1904).  Cf. Luganda Bbwaddene.

... The word mudzi, generally translated "village," is often used of a village in one sense, and even applied to the towns of Europeans; but, in fact, it corresponds to the Zulu umuzi, which means a family habitation—what we call a kraal—and can also be used for "family circle," "relatives," &c.  So that the village of Ntumbi was really made up of the kraals of Champiti, Ndabankazi, Chona, Mambala, Chigaru, and four or five others.  Champiti was the headman (mkulu) of the place, which was subject to Chatantumba... (The Gentleman's Magazine, v.283, Jul-Dec, 1897).
