  Etymology of generic noun  
Latinization of 'barila', presumably a Bengali local name for Barilius barila, but it lacks a proper reference (J. Müller, pers. comm., April 2021, after information from native speakers).
  Etymology of specific epithet  
The species name salmolucius is derived from the Latin salmo, meaning salmon, and the Latin lucius, meaning pike, and refers most probably to its general appearance (Ref. 122357).
