The term Julaha may derive from the Persian julah (ball of thread). Other explanation put forth by Julaha themselves include "jal (net), jils (decorated) or uila (lighted up, or white)".
Both Hindu and Muslim Julaha groups exist; a number of the Muslim Julaha later changed their group name to terms such as Ansari (the prophet Mohammed's term for the Muslims of Medina) or Nurbaf (weaver of light), Persian being a prestigious language amongst area Muslims).
