The state of Almina, like all other Dragoonish states, contains places with names of Parkufo origin; the name of Almina itself, in this case, is derived from the word Allamanna, the name of a Parkufo tribe that lived in the area before English-speaking settlers arrived. Below is a list of place names in Almina with names of Parkufo origin.
