Etymology

Lazarus island was also known as Pulau Sakijang Pelepah (alternatively spelled as Pulau Sekijang Pelepah). Literally translated from Malay, 'sa' means one, 'kijang' means barking deer and 'pelepah' is a palm frond. Put together, it means 'Island of One Barking Deer and Palms'.

It is unclear when and why it was renamed to Lazarus Island.
