Nahunta Swamprises in E Johnston County and flows E across NE Wayne County and NE into Contentnea Creek in W Greene County. It is mentioned under various spellings as early as 1711 as Norhanty, Norrihunta, and No Honey. Appears on the Collet map, 1770, as Beaverdam Swamp in N Wayne County. It is not shown as such on subsequent maps. The name is either originally or in corrupted form a Tuscarora Indian word, perhaps from Kahunshe Wakena (Black Creek).
