Abstract: ‘Yetto’, the name of a railway stopping place on the former Willunga line, was approved by the Nomenclature Committee on 10th January 1946. It was almost certainly a mistranscription of ‘Yatto’, a word from the language of the Aboriginal people of Streaky Bay taken by the Nomenclature Committee from EM Curr’s Australian Race (1886).
