Dangethi is fondly referred to as Handhu Runbaa by the locals. The word Handhu translates to moon in English and Runbaa means jar. The origin of this nick name comes from a popular myth that is well known in this island.

The myth is about some fishermen who went out fishing one night, when the sky was clear and moon was shining. When they were out in the sea on their boat (dhoni), one of the fishermen caught sight of the reflection of the moon in a jar that was in the boat. The reflection made the moon seem like it was in the jar. Out of excitement, he called out to the other fishermen who were with him in the boat. On seeing the moon in the jar, all the fishermen became excited at the thought that they had managed to trap the moon in the jar. They decided that the best thing they could do with such a gift was to present it to their king, so as to honor him. So, they immediately closed the lid of the jar and set sail to the island where their king lived. On reaching the Kings palace, they told him that they wanted to give him a special gift. You can imagine the surprise of the fishermen when they opened the jar to show the king his special gift only to realize that the moon was no longer there. Since that day, the island has been known as Handhu Runbaa.
