This language has been known by many names and variants of names, including:
Pintubi, Bindubi, Pintunala, Pintubu (by Walpiri), Pindu, Pindubu Bindubu, Bindooboo Bindibu, Bindiboo Bindaboo, Pintubidjara, Pintularapi
Matjunalatara (by Ngadadjara)
Children who were born in Papunya and Haasts Bluff grew up speaking a new variety of Pintupi, now known as Pintupi-Luritja, due to their close contact with speakers of Arrernte, Warlpiri and other varieties of the WDL. This has continued through the moves west so that most Pintupi people today speak Pintupi-Luritja, although there remains a clear distinction between the more western and eastern varieties.
