Legend has it that the name Andaman comes from the Malays, who did not know the islands since ancient times, as the islands gave them slaves. They sailed across the seas, captured some Native peoples, and enslaved them to trade. The Malays called themselves Handuman Islands because that is how they pronounced Hanuman's name in Ramayana, which is a unique name, and Handuman eventually became Andaman.
