Hi there,

Konol (the sky)
Balun (a river)
Natan (a figtree)
Miki (the moon)
Kulan (possum)

Hope you find something you like soon smile]
hi, sorry i dont have any suggestions but i really love Cobar! is it pronounced Co-bar? thats how i would say it.

With regards to Cobar, according to wikipedia: The name Cobar is derived from Ngiyampaa Kuparr.

I read somewhere a few weeks ago that Kuparr itself is the indigenous pidgin/pronunciation for copper, which is mined in that town (Cobar).

In terms of masculine sounding indigenous words/names, how about Balun? [river]. Remember, the spelling can only ever be described as an approximation, so don't concern too much with changing it to suit your needs (Balan, Balin, etc).
Hi there, I have an aboriginal friend and he named his son `Bilay` and if i remember correctly i think it means `red breasted parrot` or something like that anyway. Goodluck.
Hey I know this is a few months old but I have some boy names and meanings.

Maliyan - wedge tailed eagle
Djarlo - fire
Merekai - peace keeper
Matari - Man
My husbands maternal side are waradjiri people... we liked Yarran for a boy.
