Meaning & History
The name of the young Australian mixed-Aboriginal boy in Baz Lurhman's epic 2008 film "Australia", played by Brandon Walters.His name was inspired by two place names: Nullarbor Plain (Latin for “no trees”) and nullah, a Hindi word for a narrow, steep-sided valley. In dry countries like Australia, these nullahs are commonly filled with brushwood, and when it rains heavily, they temporarily become streams. Nullah (or nulla nulla) also means "war club or hunting stick" in Darug language.
