The name is thought to be derived from the Malayalam word Mala (hill) and puram (region) derived or westernised into bar. This part of India was a part of the british East India Company controlled Madras State. when it was designated as Malabar District. It included the northern half of the state of Kerala and some coastal regions of present day Karnataka.
In ancient times, the term Malabar was used to denote the entire south-western coast of the Indian peninsula. But today, Malabar is only used for the former Malabar district,or northern districts of Kerala State.
