The word "karabela" does not have well-established etymology, and different versions are suggested. For example, Zygmunt Gloger suggests derivation from the name of the Iraqi city of Karbala, known for trade of this kind of sabres. "Kara" means "Black/Dark" and "Bela" means "Trouble/Curse" in Turkish.
