Some researchers [who?] States that the term "Kujang" is derived from the word kudihyang (kudi and Hyang. Kujang (also) comes from the word Ujang, which means human or Manusa. Humans are powerful as King Siliwangi.

Kudi is taken from the ancient Sundanese language, which means weapons that have a powerful supernatural force, as a talisman, as repellent reinforcements, such as to repel enemies or avoid harm / disease [citation needed]. This weapon is also stored as an heirloom, which is used to protect the home from danger by putting them in a crate or a specific place in the house or by putting them on the bed (Hazeu, 1904: 405-406). Meanwhile, Hyang can be equated with the notion in some mythological god, but for Hyang Sundanese people have the meanings and positions on the Gods, it is reflected in the doctrine of "Dasa Prebakti" which is reflected in the manuscript Sanghyang Torment Kanda Karesian Ng mentioned "God of devotion in Hyang ".

The evidence reinforces the assertion that Kujang as farming equipment we can still see today on the Bedouins, Bantam and pancer Pangawinan in Sukabumi.
