Never heard of that word or meaning here in Oz.
Mooloo men were half men half bull-like creature in Maori folklore, but that's the nearest I could get.

Woolloomooloo is a district of Sydney and there were all sorts of debates as to which aboriginal word(s) it stemmed from until a researcher discovered there was a windmill on the site and that the aborigines couldn't pronounce the word "windmill", hence woolloomooloo.

The famous Nullarbor plain which stretches across southern Australia doesn't have an aboriginal name either. "Nullarbor" is Latin -Null Arbor, which means "no trees".

There's a terrorist leader called Mullah Dadullah. I often thought he should live in Ulladulla. People would meet his relatives overseas and say "are you related to the Ulladullah Dadullahs?
They'd reply "wish I had adullah for every time I've been asked that".

No, my old thesaurus only has words in. Kids today have got everything.
