Meaning of the baby name GATURA.


GATURA.  Malay name, probably meaning "one who excels" from kato (surpass), and uro (wonder at). (An Outline Grammar of the Gang Language, Kitching, 1907)

... the active, lively boy was much about in the cinnamon plantations (just then beginning to be cultivated by the few British residents on the islands,) which were superintended by a Cinglese, called Vinna, a man of remarkable quickness and much apparent fidelity; whilst on longer excursions, he was put in charge of a superior domestic servant, a Malay of the name of Gatura, who, by his pliancy of manner, and powers of amusement, had greatly ingratiated himself with his young master. (Museum of Foreign Literature, Walsh, v.31, 1837)
