Definition of the noun Davara

What does Davara mean as a name of something?

Davara is a genus of Pyralidae, described by Walker in 1859.


  1. The Davara was a British steam trawler during World War II that was sunk by the German submarine U-27. On 6 January 1912, the ship was launched from Selby by the shipbuilding company Cochrane & Sons Ltd. The ship's owner, Mount Steam Fishing Co Ltd. christened her the Davara. By March 1912, the trawler was registered and completed and in 1914 she was requisitioned by the British Navy for service in World War I and fitted out for mine sweeping activities. Having survived World War I, she was returned to her owners in 1919 and served as a trawler once more until 13 September 1939 when she was sunk by 35 rounds from U-27's main deck gun. The 12 man crew managed to escape the submarine in a lifeboat while the Davara later sunk at 2:55pm from the damage inflicted by U-27's gunfire. Her crew remained in the water "baling and rowing" for five hours before they were picked up by the steamer Willowpool and safely made landfall. The Davara was the first British trawler to be sunk by enemy action in World War II.
  2. Davara a.k.a. Tavara: Davara is a demon of the night or nightmare in Turkish folklore of the Trabzon region.

The implement used in carrying it out is called Davara and is like the Vakhar except that it is of smaller dimensions to admit of its running between the two lines of the sowings.
