Re: chat about origin of our name
I am a Carruba by birth, and have some info about the name.These are just things I've heard from my family (no written documentation of these statements)-
The name Carruba derives from the word "carob" which is a type of fruit (this is a little yellow fruit, aka the "star fruit" becuse its pieces look like stars when sliced).
Also, the name Carruba can also belong to different nationalities with variations in spelling ie:Karrubba is the Arabic version.
I'm eager to see if anyone else has any info..
