Abstract: This ethnolinguistic endeavour is a departure from the conventional use of tribal names such as Jarawa, Onge and Sentinelese. It is concerned with the relationship between the purport and the name as well as the ethnic identity and its distorted signification in the diachronic context. Nothing seems more basic than the dilemma that the Jarawas and Onges do not recognize their popularised name which was observed by Cipriani. And it may spell confusion crystallized between the name and the respective remain as permanent paradoxes. This article is an attempt to trace out the origin and evolution of the tribal names through which the Kernel identity can be reassessed which would help to open a new dialogue in the cultural history of the negrito of Andaman.
