In the beginning, the word ‘Malayalam’ may have been a local dialect. The first part of the word ‘Malayalam’, ie, ‘Mala’ is referred to the hill and the last word ‘Alam’ to the depths of the ocean (‘Alam’ over the years transformed to Azham’ meaning ‘depths’). So the ‘Malayalam’ may refer to the land lying between the Arabian Sea and the Western Ghats. If that be so, Malayalam refers to a hilly region.
