Firstly, a huge blunder on my part.
The clay pot etymology was considering that it was Karavas. [ the word has Pali origins, karaka etc]
As the commenters pointed out , these are the acceptable answers.
A – Paravas , a fisherman community.
B – Catamaran, (from Tamil kattumaram) is a type of multihulled boat or ship consisting of two hulls, or vakas, joined by some structure,the most basic being a frame, formed of akas.
C – William Dampier
D – NR Narayana Murthy recently started a VC firm called Catamaran.
