Abstract: Maitpangga is the Aboriginal name for part of the main valley of the Myponga River. It is almost certainly in Kaurna language, using the common Locative ngga (‘at, place of’); but there is no other known meaning, since no maitpa was recorded in any of the local languages. In any case, a placename need not have a dictionary meaning.
