The generic name Varanus is derived from the Arabic word waral ورل, which is translated to English as "monitor". Their specific name comes from a compound of two Latin words: albus meaning "white" and gula meaning "throat". The subspecific name is a Latinized form of the country in which they are found: Angola.
Its range is through Angola, Namibia, Zambia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Coruche.
