kurama is composed of at least two "Kanji" combination, Kura and Ma.

Kura often means "warehouse" or "saddle". Ma often means " interval" or "horse".

So, the first pattern means "sit temporary in a warehouse", "warehouse space", "between warehouse to warehouse" or something else like that.

The second pattern means "horse with saddle (harness)". This second type of "Kurama" is also the name of famouse and historical town in Kyoto, where it is believed that "Tengu", a monster spilit in Japan, has been living.

Other types of Kurama may also exist.
